Dominica among Caribbean countries to benefit from multi-million dollar agreement signed between US AID and PAHO
Dominica is among Caribbean countries expected to benefit from a multi-million dollar agreement signed between the US agency for International Development US AID and the Pan American Health Organization (PAHO).
US AID will provide more than 31 million US dollars to improve health in Latin America and the Caribbean over the next 5 years, and PAHO says the partnership will support its technical cooperation in its member states in areas including tuberculosis, malaria, neglected infectious diseases, maternal and neo-natal health and inequities related to gender, ethnicity and other social determinants.
The agreement also supports efforts to strengthen health information systems, as well as health systems overall.
PAHO's Dominican born Director Carissa Etienne says "We are proud of the many health achievements that our work with US AID has produced in our member countries, and we are grateful for the opportunity to continue this partnership to build on these achievements."
PAHO has worked with the US AID for nearly three decades to improve the health and lives of people in Latin America and the Caribbean.
