Strategic goal: "To reduce the social and economic impact of HIV and AIDS on individuals and communities, and ultimately the development of the country"
From the document:
The Government of Guyana has declared HIV/AIDS a National Priority and has made this priority an important plank in its Poverty Reduction Strategy Program (PRSP). The Government has committed itself to an accelerated, comprehensive, multi-sector, multi-level response and has declared that only through a well coordinated partnership with local and international partners could Guyana respond effectively to the challenge of HIV/AIDS. The Government is convinced that HIV/AIDS is a barrier to development.
