USAID/Barbados & the Eastern Caribbean (USAID/B&EC) will support the second year of a five year program that increases the participation and integration of the private and commercial sector as vital components of a sustainable multi-sectoral response to HIV/AIDS across the region. In year one, after a collaborative regional stakeholder's meeting, USAID completed an in-depth analysis of private sector gaps and opportunities. Additionally, several strategic partnerships were explored in an effort to identify high-impact partnerhsips contributing to the regional HIV/AIDS response. Lastly, USAID and their prime partner, Abt Associates, facilitated regional information exchange for state-of-the-art PPP models, approaches and tools in an effort to guide future policy and programming.

Under the PF, with ROP '11resources,USAID/B&EC seeks to build on the momentum made during year one and provide targeted technical assistance for an increased role of the private sector by fostering greater public, private partnerships (PPPs) within the national and regional HIV/AIDS responses. The ultimate goal of this five year program is to strengthen HIV and health outcomes, via private sector partnerships, through the sustainable provision and use of quality HIV and other health related information, products and services.
