Generated and disseminated best practices for engaging the private sector
Building on the successful history of shared learning in the region, SHOPS Plus consolidated and shared best practices around effectively engaging with the private sector for sustaining the HIV response. The project provided technical leadership and support to public and private sector stakeholders in Guyana and Trinidad and Tobago as they transition to a country-owned and financed multisectoral HIV response through regional, cross-learning events, and practical web-based guides that share innovations and best practices. SHOPS Plus co-hosted learning events with the Pan Caribbean Partnership Against HIV/AIDS and other regional groups to reinforce their value to the regional community. The events included a skills-based workshop on contracting with the private sector, and web-based trainings on tools, techniques, and strategies for sustaining the HIV response.
