While Afghanistan does not yet have a large number of reported HIV/AIDS cases, a number of vulnerabilities and patterns of risky behaviours signal the need to take action now, before it is too late to make a difference to the course of the epidemic. Towards that end the Ministry of Health in collaboration with the HIV/AIDS Technical Working Group in the Country has undertaken the development of the National HIV/AIDS and STI Strategic Plan for the period 2003-2007. The current document provides a National Strategic Framework. Following consensus on the prioritised strategies and interventions for fostering a concerted truly national response, the document would need to be followed by a detailed yearly multi- sectoral action plan with a clear timelines, responsibilities, defined budget and set of core activities.
