PEPFAR awards a limited number of grants to non-governmental organizations and other civil society entities in support of initiating a Community-Led Monitoring (CLM) program.
This Program is aimed at improving client-centered HIV services under the Ambassadors Small Grants Program (ASG). These grants advance PEPFAR’s overarching goal of ending the HIV epidemic in Jamaica. The U.S. President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) is the U.S. government’s response to the global HIV epidemic and represents the largest commitment by any nation to address a single disease in history.
