On March 3, 2010, the U.S. Government and the Council of Ministers of Health of Central America (COMISCA) signed a Partnership Framework which outlines a jointly developed strategy to support the Central American regional response to HIV/ AIDS.

The Partnership Framework provides a five-year strategic plan that will be implemented by the U.S. Government and the governments of the seven countries in the region: Belize, Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua and Panama. The Framework describes the coordination of key regional stakeholders to support the goals of the countries' Regional and National HIV/AIDS Programs, in addition to contributing to the goals of PEPFAR.
