About Eastern and Southern Caribbean


USAID's Eastern Caribbean program supports economic growth and health development activities in Barbados and six eastern Caribbean states--St. Lucia, St. Kitts and Nevis, Dominica, St. Vincent and the Grenadines, Grenada, and Antigua and Barbuda. 

The ecomomic growth program, funded in part through the Caribbean Basin Security Initiative, assists youth to lead productive lives through workforce development training and linkages with the marketplace. The program also supports reforms to the region’s juvenile justice sector as well as measures to adapt to climate change through freshwater and coastal/marine zone management.

The health portfolio focuses on combating HIV/AIDS in the region, and is implemented through the Caribbean Regional Partnership Framework under the U.S. President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief.
