SHOPS PLUS – HIV Core Sustainable Financing for HIV NGOs (Dominican Republic)


As part of the the Sustaining Health Outcomes through the Private Sector (SHOPS) Plus USAID-funded project led by Abt Associates, WDI provided diagnostic and consultative services on revenue generation and operational efficiency for four HIV-focused NGOs in the cities of La Romana and Santo Domingo in the Dominican Republic. These four organizations had historically received a significant portion of their funding from the President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) and were preparing for transition to sustainable social enterprise models. WDI’s onsite diagnostic and related technical assistance was highly customized to the business models and needs of the individual organizations. The WDI team developed actionable recommendations for the NGO decision makers on how they could modify their strategies and/or operations to work towards financial sustainability. Return visits were made to assess progress and provide additional assistance to the organizations.  WDI also provided consulting services to one of the NGOs, Clinica de Familia, for the development of a sustainable business model for its new dermatology clinic.
