Chicago's HIV/AIDS agency The Children's Place Association is working with the government of Guyana—a country with one of the highest HIV- infection rates in the Caribbean—to implement programs and services to help children and families affected by HIV/AIDS in this high-need region of the world.
The association held a roundtable in Georgetown, Guyana, to discuss the family-focused model of care that can enable adults to live longer, thereby reducing the number of children orphaned by the epidemic.
