Caribbean Vulnerable Communities Coalition (CVC) was established in 2005 and is a coalition of community leaders and non-governmental agencies that are advocates and service providers working with and on behalf of Caribbean populations who are especially vulnerable to HIV infection or often forgotten in access to treatment and healthcare programs. These groups include men who have sex with men, persons of trans experience, sex workers, people who use drugs, orphans and other children made vulnerable by HIV, migrant populations, persons in prison and ex-prisoners, and at-risk youth.
To mobilize the voice, visibility, and participation of the diverse groups we serve, to impact the regional HIV response, and to create an enabling environment to end the conditions and consequences of marginalization.
