(p.393) Chapter 26 Haiti
The HIV Pandemic

This chapter reviews Haiti's response to its HIV epidemic. Haiti has demonstrated that effective services can be implemented despite political unrest and limited financial support. Haiti has had fourteen governments in eighteen years, but the political commitment to fight HIV has been a constant: the HIV epidemic was recognized and defined very early in its course in Haiti, and a coordinated public and private response was quickly mounted. This response would have been unsuccessful were it not for the effective participation of the private health sector and the recognition of the importance of public and private philanthropic partnerships. This was evidenced by Haiti's successful Global Fund application, which was the result of close collaboration between the public and private sectors in Haiti.
