(p.364) Chapter 24 Barbados
The HIV Pandemic

This chapter reviews Barbados's response to its HIV epidemic. The World Bank loan has been instrumental in establishing expanded HIV response. However, such funding is a temporary measure and the government of Barbados must seek to establish the mechanisms necessary to continue funding the programme. Without a reduction in new HIV infections, the number of patients requiring ART, as well as its attendant costs, will continue to grow. Scientific methods must therefore be employed to monitor the HIV epidemic and put the programme in a position to respond appropriately.

Keywords:   World Bank loan, HIV epidemic, ART, health system, HIV infection
