As donor funding for HIV programs in Jamaica is decreasing, HP+ used a social contracting diagnostic tool to better understand barriers to and opportunities for the continuation of HIV interventions implemented by civil society organizations (CSOs) through public financing. The tool answers four main questions: (1) Is it possible for the government to contract with CSOs within the existing legal and policy framework? (2) What structural and regulatory barriers exist in contracting with CSOs for the provision of HIV prevention, care, and treatment services? (3) What are the specific strengths of CSOs and opportunities for social contracting? and (4) What mechanism would be the most useful? This assessment confirms that the framework exists for the Government of Jamaica to contract with CSOs for the provision of services related to HIV.
