Classified as an upper-middle-income country in 2010, Jamaica is reorganizing its HIV response to heighten efficiency and financial sustainability. A key challenge involves sustaining the program, given declining external assistance and a government in fiscal crisis. Facing this challenge, the Jamaican Ministry of Health has integrated elements of its HIV program into its family planning program to create a new national Ministry of Health (MOH) agency for sexual health. In undertaking this reform, the MOH found a dearth of guidance about national-level integration. Thus, the MOH collaborated with the USAID- and PEPFAR-funded Health Policy Project to assess lessons to date and map next steps. This poster about the study was presented at the 20th International AIDS Conference in Melbourne, Australia, in July 2014.
