LONG-TERM (20 YEAR) VISION • The proposed long-term vision for the country with respect to the twin epidemics is the four zeros: • Zero new infections from HIV and TB; • Zero preventable deaths associated with HIV and AIDS and TB; • Zero discrimination; and • Zero infections related to mother to child transmission
5 NSP GOALS • Reduce new HIV infections by at least 50% using combination prevention approaches; • Initiate at least 80% of eligible patients on antiretroviral treatment (ART), with 70% alive and on treatment five years after initiation; • Reduce the number of new TB infections, as well as the number of TB deaths by 50%; • Ensure an enabling and accessible legal framework that protects and promotes human rights in order to support implementation of the NSP; and • Reduce self-reported stigma and discrimination related to HIV and TB by 50%.
4 NSP STRATEGIC OBJECTIVES • Address social and structural barriers to HIV and TB prevention, care and treatment; • Prevent new HIV, STI and TB infections; • Sustain health and wellness; and • Ensure protection of human rights and increase access to justice.
SO 1: ADDRESS SOCIAL AND STRUCTURAL BARRIERS • Mainstream HIV and TB and its gender and rights-based dimensions into the core mandates of all government departments and all SANAC sectors • Address social, economic and behavioural drivers of HIV, STIs and TB • Implement interventions to address gender inequities and gender-based violence as drivers of HIV and STIs • Mitigate the impact of HIV and TB on orphans, vulnerable children and youth
SO 1: ADDRESS SOCIAL AND STRUCTURAL BARRIERS • Reduce the vulnerability of young people to HIV infection by retaining them in schools, as well as providing post-school education and work opportunities • Reduce HIV and TB related stigma and discrimination • Strengthen community systems • Support efforts aimed at poverty alleviation and enhancing food security programmes
SO 2: PREVENT NEW INFECTIONS • Maximise opportunities to ensure everyone in South Africa tests voluntarily for HIV and is screened for TB at least annually, and is subsequently enrolled in relevant wellness and treatment, care and support programmes • Make accessible a package of sexual and reproductive health (SRH) services • Prevent transmission of HIV to reduce MTCT to less than 2% at six weeks and to less than 5% at 18 months by 2016
SO 2: PREVENT NEW INFECTIONS • Implement a comprehensive national social and behavioural change communication strategy with particular focus on key populations • Prepare for the potential implementation of future innovative, scientifically proven HIV, STI and TB prevention strategies • Prevent TB infection and disease • Address sexual abuse and improve services for survivors of sexual assault
SO 3: MAINTAIN HEALTH AND WELLNESS • Reduce disability and death resulting from HIV, STIs and TB through universal access to HIV and TB screening, diagnosis, care and treatment • Ensure that people living with HIV, STIs and TB remain within the health care system, are adherent to treatment and maintain optimal health and wellness • Ensure that systems and services are responsive to the needs of people living with HIV, STIs, and TB
SO 4: HUMAN RIGHTS AND ACCESS TO JUSTICE • Recognise the centrality of constitutional values and human rights in line with rights entrenched in Chapter 2 of the Constitution and the obligations these impose on the state including the rights to equality, dignity, life, freedom and security of the person and privacy. • All SOs to address the needs of key populations • Recognising that the legal framework for respecting, protecting, promoting and fulfilling rights is largely in place, SANAC must give special attention to groups that are at higher risk. • SANAC will work with all institutions to address human rights and any form of discrimination with respect to HIV, STI and TB.
MONITORING AND EVALUATION • Levels of monitoring • Monitor provincial implementation plans (using largely existing data collection systems) • Monitor sector implementation plans • Develop monitoring system for NSP (focusing on the strategic issues) • Midterm evaluation • End of term evaluation 20
