Project Summary

With the highest HIV prevalence in Central America and over half of the population aged of under 25, Belize has faced significant social and economic challenges as a result of the HIV epidemic. UNDP assumed the role of Principal Recipient (PR) for Global Fund HIV grants in Belize in 2011. The grants combat key drivers of HIV including poverty, unemployment, chronic malnutrition, and drug abuse, by targeting young people and key populations at higher risk, such as men who have sex with men and female sex workers. The HIV programme has delivered HIV-related education to youth, increased access to condoms and subsidized testing for STIs, provided support services to people living with HIV and children affected by AIDS, and offered antiretroviral drugs free of cost at all treatment points.

    Belize has a formal Capacity Development Plan in place and transition to a national Principal Recipient is under review
