Central to Nepal's National HIV and AIDS Strategy 2006-2011 is the call to scale up universal access to prevention, treatment, care and support. This is a continuation of the National HIV and AIDS Strategy 2002-2006 that remains strongly in accordance with the aim to accelerate Nepal's response to HIV and AIDS in order to stay ahead of the epidemic. To carry this out, a National Action Plan on HIV and AIDS 2006- 2008 was developed through a multisectoral participative consultation. A successor plan is necessary for sustaining the gains achieved in past years, addressing the gaps and emerging challenges, and responding to the changing needs and realities that Nepal faces in relation to HIV prevention, treatment, care and support. This National Action Plan on HIV and AIDS 2008-2011 serves as a blueprint for articulating the necessary actions to achieve universal access to prevention, treatment, care and support over the next three years. In its effort to ensure that it is fully implemented, this Plan provides indicative resource requirements for all actions required, support pledged by different sources and addressing resource gaps. Accordingly, this planning document serves as an advocacy tool for domestic and global resource mobilization. Moreover, this Plan is Nepal's version of the "One Agreed Action Framework on AIDS", one of the Three Ones Principles to which Nepal has already committed.
