Training on HIV reducing measures
Permanent Secretary in the Ministry of Health Ms. Helen Royer says the aim of this project is to create an example for the rest of the Caribbean to follow.
Ms. Royer believes stigma and discrimination towards people living with HIV AIDS is a major deterrent.
She says the Health Project provides full access of quality health services to those living with HIV, and they should take full advantage of these services.
Caribbean Representative Ms. Ayan Hypolite says this is a 5year co-operative agreement funded by USAID which started in 2010.
In addition, the USAID is working on an important aspect which is helping networks of people living with HIV.
Ms. Hypolite feels it is important that everyones voice is heard and the Health Policy Project will do all that they can.
She says together, the Health Policy Project can convince the policy makers and leaders to take an active step in protecting the rights with the people living with HIV.
