  6. A study of the Pan Caribbean Partnership against HIV/AIDS (PANCAP): Common goals, shared responses

    The Caribbean region has the second highest prevalence of HIV infection in the world after sub-Saharan Africa. Extensive population mobility and the very limited capacity of many Caribbean countries to respond to AIDS, combined with a realization that AIDS seriously threatens the economic and social well being of the region, led national and regional partners to join with international organizations in the Pan Caribbean Partnership Against HIV/AIDS (PANCAP). …
