Mr Tyrone Ellis was installed as Chair, and Ms Renatta Langlais as Vice-Chair of the Caribbean Regional Network of People Living with HIV and AIDS (CRN+) during the organisation’s Board Meeting convened at the Courtyard by Marriott Hotel, Bridgetown, Barbados, on 26 – 27 September 2019.

Attendees included the CRN+ Board of Directors, Technical Advisory Group and Secretariat Staff. In addition to electing a new Chair and Vice-Chair, the meeting facilitated a review of the CRN+ Global Fund Grant which ended 30 September 2019. Another objective of the meeting was to further evaluate and update the organisation’s strategy to remain relevant within the Region’s changing HIV landscape.

Addressing the Board for the first time as Chair, Mr Ellis stated “the meeting was important for CRN+ to further review and update its strategic direction to remain relevant within the changing HIV landscape in the Region. CRN+ must perform better, especially with a significant reduction in funding. With the development of an organisational development strategy, CRN+ will be guided on the best way forward. We need action!”
