FHI 360 is a United States-based nonprofit human development organization dedicated to improving lives in lasting ways by advancing integrated, locally driven solutions. It serves more than 60 countries worldwide. FHI 360 is the lead agency on the Linkages Across the Continuum of HIV Services for Key Populations Affected by HIV(LINKAGES) project, a five-year cooperative agreement funded by the U.S. President's Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR). Under the LINKAGES project, FHI 360 is partnered with Pact, IntraHealth International, and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill to conduct a range of activities globally to reduce HIV transmission among key populations — sex workers, men who have sex with men, transgender, and people who inject drugs — and to improve their enrollment and retention in care.
The LINKAGES programs in the Eastern Caribbean include four distinct country programs, including in Trinidad & Tobago, Suriname, Bahamas, and Barbados. Each of these programs are designed to accelerate the ability of the governments, key population leaders, organizations working with key populations, and private-sector providers to plan and implement services that achieve national and global goals in mitigating the HIV/AIDS epidemic, with a focus on key populations.
The key elements of the FHI 360-led team’s strategic and technical approach include the following:
  • Identify key populations and locales and comprehensively assess risk
  • Diagnose “leaks” and reveal access barriers within the HIV services cascade
  • Scale up “what works” while innovating to ensure the most strategic use of resources and access to newly emerging technologies
  • Address structural barriers and empower local KP organizations
  • Ensure interventions are sustainable
  • Support the mainstreaming of human rights, gender, and competency/capacity development
