SEMRHI proudly announces that Tonya Green and Aspen Hardges, Social Services Department, were selected to participate in the HRSA PEPFAR Skills Sharing Program (SSP) in Jamaica from January 24-February 3, 2024, with a second visit planned for early summer 2024. PEPFAR stands for U.S. President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief, and its aim is to save lives, prevent HIV infections, and accelerate progress toward achieving HIV/AIDS pandemic control in more than 50 countries around the world.

Tonya and Aspen, along with other U.S. HIV providers, participated in a bilateral peer-to-peer exchange between PEPFAR-supported sites in Jamaica that experience challenges in clinical care, psychosocial services, and quality improvement (QI). Their targeted population consisted of adolescents and young women, and they provided technical assistance (TA) to the staff on managing mental health and achieving viral suppression.
