« Le terrain n’est pas facile. Cependant notre volonté

est ferme de lutter nous aussi à coté des autres. Cette

phase de recrutement devra sûrement nous conduire

bientôt à une grande rencontre élargie afin de démarrer

de façon pratique notre réseau. D ’autres expériences à

travers d ’autres conférences internationales nous

aideront à mieux assister et encadrer nos siens. »

Conclusion
  • Involvement of PLWAS in the frontline of the Haiti AIDS National program suggesting that even in the context of an environment of strong S&D empowerment of PLWHA can result in hope, reduction of fears and development of social support to contain the HIV/AIDS epidemic
  • Given the actual number of PLWHA, around 260,000 and the fact they are at greater risks of transmitting HIV and STI, more programmatic interventions and more funding are needed to scaling up these initiatives in all caribbean countries
