To improve health and wellbeing, socioeconomic, and educational outcomes of vulnerable children, adolescents, and families of Haitian migrants and their descendents in the Dominican Republic (DR) who have been affected by HIV, thereby helping the DR achieve epidemic control and a sustained reduction in HIV transmission.
