The United States Agency for International Development (USAID) has worked with the Government and people of Jamaica since 1953 to:
• Promote greater transparency and good governance practices;
• Foster Jamaican participation in regional security; strengthening
• Reduce the prevalence of HIV/AIDS;
• Promote economic prosperity; and
• Decrease vulnerability to climate change
USAID’s many successes would not have been possible without the support and dedication of our Jamaican partners. To demonstrate its appreciation, USAID/Jamaica hosted a reception on June 20, for implementing partners who collaborated with the Mission over the last 4 years. The event also allowed guests to bid farewell to USAID Mission Director, Denise Herbol, who is now approaching the end of her 4-year tour of duty on the island.
Guests included Prime Minister The Most Honorable Andrew Holness, Former Prime Minister and Leader of the Opposition, Most Honorable Portia Simpson Miller, government officials, USAID implementing partners, members of civil society and other stakeholders.
We sincerely wish Denise well on her upcoming tour in Pakistan and thank her for her tireless effort in leading USAID/Jamaica.
