  • Description:
    The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) office in Barbados is part of CDC’s Caribbean Regional Office (CRO). CDC CRO opened in 2002 in Trinidad and Tobago, relocated to Barbados in 2008, followed by another move to Jamaica in 2018. CDC works to support the Government of Barbados and other partners in-country to reach the Joint United Nations Programme on HIV/AIDS (UNAIDS) 95-95- 95 goals and accelerate HIV epidemic control, through support of adoption of World Health Organization (WHO) and globally-known best practices. The UNAIDS 95-95-95 targets are, by 2030: 95 percent of all people living with HIV (PLHIV) will know their HIV status; 95 percent of all people with diagnosed HIV will receive sustained antiretroviral therapy (ART); and 95 percent of all people receiving ART will have viral suppression. CDC’s main goals are to: Improve access to quality services for PLHIV; re-engage PLHIV lost to follow-up and retain them on treatment to achieve viral suppression; enhance laboratory capacity and improve viral load testing services; and improve data access and quality, particularly for key populations to inform program decisions. Barbados is a small island nation with a smaller HIV burden compared to other CRO supported countries, and it is close to reaching its first 95 of the UNAIDS 95-95-95 goals. International best practices and policies based on WHO recommendations will be fast-tracked in order to accelerate progress. The U.S. President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR)/CDC support to Barbados is transitioning to local government and will end by October 2020.
