Where We Work / St. Lucia

St. Lucia was part of the Capacity Project's work with the Caribbean HIV/AIDS Regional Training Network (CHART).

Partnering Initiatives through the USAID/Latin America and Caribbean (LAC) Bureau

Beginning in 2006, the Capacity Project worked to improve the capacity of the health workforce by introducing the HRH Action Framework (HAF) to several countries in the LAC region, including Peru, Ecuador, Colombia, Chile, Bolivia and Belize. The Project assisted the Caribbean HIV/AIDS Regional Training Network (CHART) to develop and implement a rapid training needs assessment tool for use in regional training centers located throughout the Caribbean. The Project also provided technical assistance for Caribbean countries to help effectively manage their Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria (GFTAM) grants. These are performance-based grants and require management systems that many Caribbean organizations are still developing.

Selected activities from these initiatives included:

  • Creating and implementing a health economics course, focusing on human resources for health, for the top 36 leaders and managers in the Peru Ministry of Health
  • Providing technical assistance to the Caribbean Regional Network of People Living with HIV/AIDS to manage its regional GFTAM grant
  • Strengthening the monitoring and evaluation (M&E) capacities of ministries and civil society organizations to enable them to report into their national M&E system more effectively
  • Providing technical assistance to the CHART Regional Coordinating Unit to enable its staff to conduct rapid training needs assessments.

St. Lucia was also involved in another aspect of the Capacity Project's work: see Technical Assistance to GFATM Grants.
