Abstract:

With a high government debt burden and declines in donor assistance, Jamaica faces challenges in sustaining its national HIV and family planning programs. To heighten efficiency and sustainability, the Jamaican Ministry of Health (MOH) integrated elements of its national HIV program into its family planning (FP) program to create a new national agency for sexual health. The new sexual health agency absorbs all the functions previously carried out by the national FP and HIV/STI programs except for treatment and clinical services. In undertaking this reform, the MOH found a dearth of guidance about national HIV-FP program integration. Thus, the MOH collaborated with the USAID- and PEPFAR-funded Health Policy Project to develop this case study assessing lessons to date in Jamaica and next steps.
