PEPFAR Launches Training Initiative For HIV/AIDS Organizations In Bahamas

“On Wednesday, October 10, U.S. and Bahamian officials attended the official launch of ‘The Caribbean Grant Solicitation and Management Program,’ a new PEPFAR initiative that will be executed locally by the U.S.-based nonprofit World Learning through USAID,” a press release from the U.S. Embassy in Nassau, Bahamas, reports. “The main goals of these grants include: educating people, especially youth, about HIV/AIDS and thereby preventing its spread; reducing stigma and encouraging safe practices for those living with the disease; and supporting communities to cooperate in fighting the epidemic,” the press release notes, adding, “Project proposals are being accepted through November 16, 2012” (10/10).
