St Vincent and Grenadines

Although Latin America and the Caribbean are relatively advanced regions, they still face persistent poverty. This was reduced in the 1990s but achievement of all Millennium Development Goals will be a challenge, particularly those relating to the number of people living on less than $1 a day, maternal mortality in Latin America, and gender equality and HIV and AIDS in the Caribbean.

DFID is developing Regional Assistance Plans for each region to set out its response to these challenges. In both cases increased priority will be given to making the international community as a whole more effective regionally.
