Abstract:

The Jamaican Network of Seropositives (JN+)—with support from the Jamaican Ministry of Health’s National HIV/STI Program (GIPA Unit) and the USAID- and PEPFAR-funded Health Policy Project—created a capacity-building curriculum led by people living with HIV (PLHIV). The curriculum aims to implement and advocate for Positive Health, Dignity, and Prevention (PHDP) and promote community leadership at the country level.


PHDP—a global policy framework authored by the Global Network of People Living with HIV (GNP+) and UNAIDS in 2011—advances a holistic framework for PLHIV to manage their health, advocate for high-quality HIV services, and prevent onward HIV transmission. PHDP provides a concrete framework and road map that is especially relevant to meeting current global and national care and treatment goals for HIV—and to making “combination prevention” a reality.
