New Project to Improve Public Awareness on HIV/AIDS
An action project, with the support of the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) and CHAA, has been designed into a cooperative agreement with the Caribbean HIV/AIDS Alliance, to expand a dynamic innovative project within the Eastern Caribbean.
The press conference, held on Friday September 13th 2013, highlighted the way forward with partners and stakeholders, to enhance access to HIV and AIDS prevention care and treatment services, for Most at Risk Population (MARP) in the Eastern Caribbean.
Mrs. Julie Frampton, Coordinator of the HIV/AIDS Programme, said that everyone should unite to alleviate the impact that this disease has on society and showed her gratitude in partnering with CHAA, a non-governmental Organization working in the Caribbean since 2003.
Dylis Mc Donald, the Technical Director of the Regional Office of Caribbean HIV/AIDS Alliance, said it is important to reinforce our commitment on support to the national response.
The focus of the Alliance, is to reach out to those most at risk to HIV infections and continue to move ahead, despite the foreseeable challenges.
In implementing this project, CHAA will partner with Population Services International, who will assist in meeting key strategies of the project, including social marketing/media, along with the Caribbean Network of Positives.
