CCAS-PANCAP-logoCARICOM Secretariat, Turkeyen, Greater Georgetown, Guyana - The Pan Caribbean Partnership against HIV and AIDS (PANCAP) will hold the Twentieth Meeting of its Executive Board and the Fifth Meeting of the Regional Coordinating Mechanism (RCM) for Global Fund Projects on 18 to 20 July 2013, in Kingston, Jamaica

Under the chairmanship of the Honourable Fenton Ferguson, Minister of Health, Jamaica, the Executive Board which has responsibility for providing policy guidance on the effective management and operation of the Partnership, will review the issues and recommendations of importance to the Partnership and its governance. In this context, outgoing PANCAP Director, Ms. Juliette Bynoe-Sutherland, will present a report to the Meeting on matters related to the functioning of the Partnership during her tenure.

This Twentieth Meeting will focus on the strategic and programmatic direction of the Partnership over the next years, through a consultative process to develop a new Caribbean Regional Strategic Framework. The last framework agreement came to an end in 2012. A summary presentation of the evaluation of the Caribbean Regional Strategic Framework (2008-2012) and the performance of the Partnership, in this context, will also be delivered.

The Fifth meeting of the RCM for Global Fund Projects will receive several reports, including a review of Phase I of the Global Fund Grant and an update on the implementation of the  programme of work for Phase Two  of the Grant.

PANCAP is a regional Partnership which was established in February 2001 to respond to the HIV and AIDS epidemic in the Caribbean. Its vision is to substantially reduce the spread and impact of HIV and AIDS in the Caribbean through sustainable systems of universal access to HIV prevention, treatment, care and support.
