The overall goal of the NSP is to reduce the impact of HIV/AIDS on the social development of the country. The national goals are 1) to maintain the low HIV prevalence among most-at-risk-populations (MARP) and the general population; and 2) to increase the quality of life of those already infected. The NSP has 6 strategies to achieve these goals. The two core strategies are: 1. Increased coverage and quality of prevention interventions; 2. Increased coverage and quality of care, support and treatment intervention. To support the above, the four additional strategies are: 3. Improved generation and use of information for planning and policy development; 4. Increased involvement of relevant sectors and levels of government in the response; 5. More supportive public policy and legal environment for HIV/AIDS control; 6. Improved management and coordination of the response.
