Minister of Health Terrence Deyalsingh says neurosurgery is on the rise in Trinidad and Tobago in an effort to reduce death and disability.

Addressing the opening ceremony of the International Neuroendoscopic Conference and Workshop on Monday, Minister Deyalsingh said globally, over six million people die each year from readily treatable surgical conditions, surpassing the number of annual deaths caused by HIV, malaria and tuberculosis combined.

He said many diseases, such as Non-Communicable Diseases or NCDs, require neurosurgical management and further contribute to the burden of death and disability.

The Minister also acknowledged that the Workshop marks the Third Neurosciences Conference as well as the culmination of two years of close cooperation in health with the People's Republic of China.
