National Committee for the Control of AIDS, NCCA
The National Response to HIV/AIDS/STI is coordinated by the National Committee for the Control of AIDS (NCCA). The NCCA was established in 1988 and restructured in 2003 through a prime ministerial decree. It currently consists of 14 members from 12 different institutions and is chaired by the Minister of Health. Provincial Committees for the Control of AIDS have been established in all provinces and District Committees for the Control of AIDS (DCCAs) have been established in some provinces. The National Strategic Plan 2006-2010 is based primarily on reviews of the NSP 2002-2005, and the second round of behavioural and sero-surveillance (October 2004).This document outlined the fact that many strategies and approaches have to be reviewed and prioritised in order to increase the effectiveness and impact of the national AIDS programme.
