This five-year cooperative agreement built on previous IntraHealth efforts in the Central American region, specifically in Belize, El Salvador, Costa Rica, Guatemala, and Panama.
The program focused on two components:
A regional component to enhance the Continuum of Care Strategy in Central American countries (Belize, Costa Rica, El Salvador, and Panama)
A bilateral component to expand the Continuum of Care Strategy to improve the quality of life for people living with HIV and other vulnerable populations in Guatemala.
IntraHealth helped strengthen the ability of ministries of health, social security institutes, and multisectoral Continuum of Care networks to sustain quality and performance in health services. IntraHealth’s technical approach emphasized promoting local capacity, ownership, and stewardship of all project outcomes and interventions to strengthen health systems to offer and sustain quality services for HIV/AIDS and sexually transmitted infections.
