This report outlines the major activities and achievements of the Guyana HIV/AIDS Reduction and Prevention (GHARP) Project (2004-09). The report includes a preface by Guyana's minister of health and chapters that address what GHARP did to: ensure reliable strategic information and health information systems, build organizational and institutional capacity, and engage the private sector in the response; provide structured behavior change programs for groups most at risk, disseminate condoms to them, and improve and increase access to voluntary counseling and HIV testing; strengthen and increase access to services that prevent mother-to-child transmission of HIV; mitigate the impact of HIV/AIDS on adults and children. The final chapter addresses challenges overcome, lessons learned, and recommendations for future projects.
