Guyana's modes of transmission study experience

Print E-mail


UNAIDS’ advocacy for countries to “Know Your Epidemic and Know your Response” is based on the
premise of advanced data collection, analysis and use. For this reason, the UNAIDS Reference Group for Estimations, Models and Projections developed the Modes of Transmission (MOT) model in 2002. It’s meant to help countries estimate the distribution of new HIV infections by modes of transmission and use existing epidemiological data to better target prevention programming.

Guyana is a small country with notable resource constraints. Considerable efforts have been made to mitigate the effects of HIV on its relatively small population. In this context it is especially important to ensure that the optimal use of data leads to the most effective use of resources.

Because Guyana has been one of the most heavily affected countries in the region, its HIV and AIDS response has also benefited from both financial and technical support from multiple sources (Global Fund, United States Government, the Canadian International Development Agency (CIDA) and United Nations agencies).
