St. Augustine

Since 2001 Dr Brendan Bain, Professor of Community Health and former Head of the Department of Community Health & Psychiatry at the Mona Campus has headed the UWI HIV/AIDS Response Programme (UWI HARP).  In 2003, Professor Bain also assumed duties as Director of the CHART Regional Coordinating Unit (RCU), which was established at UWI as part of the regional response to the HIV epidemic.

With the growth of activities and deepening of responsibilities of the RCU and the entire CHART network, it has been decided that Professor Bain needs to devote his full attention to this critical work. Accordingly, he is being relieved of his teaching duties in the Department and has been seconded to the Vice-Chancellery, to continue as Director of the CHART Regional Coordinating Unit, for four years, effective June 1, 2009. As such, Professor Bain will report directly to the Vice-Chancellor.
