El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua, and Panama: HIV Sustainability and Human Rights for Central America

The HIV Sustainability and Human Rights for Central America project is a regional grant funded by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) and the U.S. President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR). The project supports government and non‐governmental partners across Central America to achieve sustainable HIV epidemic control, while improving the human rights environment through the reduction of stigma and discrimination. The response will focus on policy-level interventions, ensuring that governments are able to credibly budget for impending decreases in donor funding and also take into account the needs and opinions of vulnerable populations when prioritizing funds. Working with diverse country stakeholders using strategic information and the principles of gender equity and human rights, the project seeks to catalyze country leadership and commitment to secure long-term financing; implement sustainable policies; and reduce stigma and discrimination against key populations in order to achieve sustainable HIV epidemic control.

The HIV Sustainability and Human Rights for Central America project promotes gender equality, with specific cross-cutting focus on gender sensitivity and understanding. Along with support from key regional governments, the project will be implemented by Plan with partners Results for Development (R4D) and Internews. National implementation will be carried out according to the needs of each country, while leveraging the strength of Central American entities that support the region's efforts in order to sustain the response to control the epidemic.

The results are aimed at improving the sustainability and financing of national responses to HIV; improving the availability, accessibility, and quality of HIV services for key populations, including the reduction of stigma and discrimination; and expanding the availability of HIV services by supporting the analysis of cost-effective systems and policies.
