The Ministry of Health continues to seek and innovate new strategies to diminish the spread of HIV among key populations.

As a sub-recipient of the Global Fund, OECS Multi Country HIV and TB Elimination Grant, The Ministry of Health and Wellness, in collaboration with the Caribbean Vulnerable Communities Coalition, hosted a two-day workshop on Sexuality, Sexual and Reproductive Health for Service Providers Working with At –Risk- Youth.

The workshop commenced on the 29th of May at the Palm Heaven hotel. Senior Medical officer in the Ministry of Health, Dr. Michelle Francois provided insight into the objective of the workshop.

Psychotherapist Dr. Hazel Da Breo presented a perceptive on how to combat the spread of the HIV epidemic among disenfranchised youth.

Several service providers including Nurses, doctors, counselors, social workers, representatives from the Upton Girls’ Garden Centre and the Boys’ Training Centre have benefited from this workshop and have been armed with the information and resources to deal with these vulnerable groups.
