    The PANCAP-K4Health partnership focuses on knowledge exchange events to build stronger networks and strengthen relationships between national AIDS programme (NAP) managers and civil society organization (CSO) representatives, so that countries--and by extension the region--can deliver a coordinated and sustained response to 90-90-90 and Treat All. The events facilitate the sharing of best practices and communication and coordination among HIV implementers in the region and integrate a number of knowledge management approaches. This document highlights the results of follow-up interviews with participants.

    The K4Health Project has hosted a number of share fairs since our initial Global Health Knowledge Management Share Fair, which was held in Washington, D.C., in April 2013. Our guide walking others through the process of hosting a share fair, How to Hold a Successful Share Fair, is even in its second edition. Although I attended our first share fair, I was not closely involved in the planning process. So when I had the opportunity to be part of a small planning team for a share fair being held in the Caribbean region, I was eager to contribute to our growing body of knowledge on planning an effective share fair.

    In K4Health’s partnership with the Pan Caribbean Partnership Against HIV/AIDS (PANCAP), we hosted a South-to-South Learning Exchange of a highly effective civil society organization (CSO) providing service delivery and support of antiretroviral treatment in Jamaica. This case study explains the different knowledge management approaches that were used for an effective learning exchange to Jamaica AIDS Support for Life (JASL).

    PANCAP’s ambitious goal is to eradicate AIDS in the Caribbean by the year 2030.

    The HIV/AIDS epidemic hit the Caribbean in the late ‘70s. By 2001, it had become the second-most affected region in the world with an estimated 420,000 people – more than two percent of the adult population – living with HIV, according to a UNAIDS/WHO report. That year, a group of Caribbean nations created the Pan Caribbean Partnership against HIV/AIDS (PANCAP) to help avert new infections and reduce deaths in the region by providing support for universal access to prevention, treatment, care and support services.

    Background

    While the HIV epidemic has been stable in the Caribbean region over the last decade, there is a new focus on achieving the UNAIDS 90-90-90 targets to help end the AIDS epidemic. The region is also prioritizing the roll out of the World Health Organization’s Test and Start ( known as Treat All in the Caribbean region) guidelines, which recommends that all people diagnosed with HIV start antiretroviral therapy (ART) as soon as possible and maintain treatment throughout their lives. This is all taking place in an environment of reduced international funding for HIV and calls for country ownership.

    The Pan Caribbean Partnership Against HIV/AIDS (PANCAP) is a regional partnership of governments, regional civil society organizations, regional institutions, bilateral and multilateral agencies, and contributing donor partners. It serves as a knowledge hub to support its country members to improve the regional and national HIV response and has prioritized the scale up of Treat All across the Caribbean. Within this context, now, more than ever, there is a need to improve regional collaboration, promote sharing and learning opportunities with the aim of scaling up the WHO Treat All strategy across the region.
