"The Tropical Medicine Research Institute (TMRI) was established on October 1, 1999 by the University of the West Indies to increase the output of research in major areas affecting the health of regional peoples, increase the number of trained research scientists working in health and to facilitate the uptake of research into policy, programmes and practice, thereby contributing to improvement in the health status of Caribbean peoples."


The primary role of TMRI is the conduct of high quality research that can inform health policy, programmes and health care delivery for regional populations.
