    National Strategic Plan on HIV, STIs and TB 2012-2016. - Legislation on-line

    Adoption: 2012-02 | ZAF-2012-M-94058

    The National Strategic Plan (NSP) 2012-2016 is the country's third master plan that outlines how the country will respond to the prevention and treatment of HIV and AIDS, TB and STIs over the next five years. It seeks to improve on the achievements of the last Plan (NSP 2007-2011), which massively scaled up our anti-retroviral treatment (ART) programme and sought to decrease the number of new HIV infections.

    VISION
    The vision of the National Strategic Plan (NSP) 2012 - 2016 is driven by a long-term vision for the country and subscribes to the universal vision of the United Nations¿ Agency for HIV/AIDS (UNAIDS). Driving this vision is the commitment to have a country and world where in future there will be no new HIV, TB and STI infections, no transmission of HIV and other STIs from a parent to an unborn baby, no deaths caused by HIV, TB and STI infections and no discrimination of anyone based on their HIV, TB or STI infection. The NSP¿s vision is also in line with the mandate of the national Health Department, whose aim is to promote a healthy life, increase life expectancy, decrease maternal and child mortality and to combat HIV and AIDS as well as decrease the burden of disease from TB amongst all South Africans and all those who live in South Africa, including migrant populations.

    GOALS
    In line with UNAIDS's vision, the NSP has the following broad goals:
    - To reduce new HIV infections by, at least, half (50%) using a combination of available and new prevention methods.
    - To ensure that 80% of all people who need antiretroviral treatment (ART) actually do get it, ensure that 70% of these people do recover and remain alive and on treatment five years after initiation of ART.
    - To reduce the number of new TB infections and deaths caused by TB by half (50%).
    - To ensure an enabling and accessible legal framework that protects and promotes human rights in order to support the implementation of the NSP.
    - Lastly, to reduce self-reported stigma related to HIV and TB by 50%.

    OBJECTIVES
    The NSP seeks to fulfil four objectives:
    - To address the social and structural barriers to HIV, STI and TB prevention, care and impact.
    - To prevent new HIV, STI and TB infections.
    - To sustain health and wellness.
    - To promote and to support the protection of human rights and to help improve access to justice.

    MISSION
    While progress has been made and and will continue to be improved - in the treatment of AIDS, TB and STIs, the ultimate mission of the NSP in the next three years is to promote PREVENTION to take centre-stage in the country¿s response to HIV, TB and STIs in South Africa.
