History

USAID has worked in the Eastern Caribbean for over three decades implementing programs to promote economic growth, improve the education system, strengthen disaster mitigation and response capacity, and meet other development needs in the region.

Recognizing security challenges faced by the region, the U.S. Government works in collaboration with Caribbean governments through the Caribbean Basin Security Initiative (CBSI) to improve citizen security throughout the hemisphere. As part of CBSI, USAID implements crime prevention and social justice programs in the region.

USAID also implements HIV/AIDS prevention programs in the Eastern Caribbean through the U.S. President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) United States-Caribbean Regional HIV/AIDS Partnership Framework.
