dc.description.abstract The Caribbean has the world’s second highest rate of prevalence of HIV/AIDS, second to sub-Saharan Africa. HIV/AIDS is an epidemic that has posed all types of health issues in this region of the world. Haiti, the country on the western side of the Hispaniola peninsula, has been particularly hard hit by the epidemic. Stigma, poverty, natural disasters, and several other factors have all contributed to the devastating statistics Haiti faces from HIV/AIDS. The purpose of this project is to bring forth the HIV/AIDS problem that is currently present in Haiti and to acknowledge what has already been done, through non-governmental organizations (NGOs) and foreign aid. Furthermore, a comparison will be drawn with the HIV/AIDS case in Cuba and suggestions will be made from this comparison. Ultimately this project will culminate in support of increased culturally sensitive education and treatment by NGOs and foreign aid here on out to successfully combat and reduce the devastating impacts of HIV/AIDS in Haiti. en_US
