CHA.HIV. Regional and Subregional Planning

Active Image

PAHO is the UN agency with the primary mandate to strengthen the health sector in the Americas. In 2005, it developed a comprehensive strategy to intensify efforts to scale up the health-sector response to HIV/STI in the Americas. The Regional HIV/STI Plan for the Health Sector, 2006–2015 was endorsed by member countries in the Directing Council of September 2005, and launched by PAHO in November 2005. Subsequently, subregional plans were developed for the Andean countries and the Caribbean.

These regional and subregional plans are tools to assist health services and systems in the Americas to respond more effectively to the HIV epidemic and to prevent and control STIs.
