This 2008-2009 Progress Report provides concrete evidence of the significant progress that we have made in our response to HIV in Guyana. The improved surveillance system has enabled us to identify the decreasing trend in our epidemic, particularly among the general population. Taken together, the prevalence studies conducted among women attending antenatal clinic, programmatic data from antenatal clinic and blood banking and prevalence studies among most-at-risk groups, such as commercial sex workers and men who have sex with men provide a clearer picture of the Guyanese epidemic than any of them viewed alone. This Progress Report not only measures our achievements against the UNGASS indicators but presents us with a situation analysis. The analysis suggests that we have done very well in relation to broadening and widening the scope of our response. We must celebrate our successes. However, the analysis brings into sharp focus the work that is yet to be done if we are to remain on this path of success.
