The new National HIV and AIDS Strategy, 2011-2015 seeks to build on past achievements and address shortcomings in PNG's response to the HIV epidemic. The NHS replaces the National Strategic Plan on HIV/AIDS, 2006-2010 (NSP). Its overarching goal is to reduce transmission of HIV and other sexually transmitted infections (STI) and minimise their impact on individuals, families and communities. To effectively achieve the goals of these two priority areas, the national response will also need to make a concerted effort to address a range of key cross-cutting issues. These include: gender inequality; the meaningful involvement of people living with HIV; reducing HIV-related stigma and discrimination; capacity building and mobilisation of people, communities, and organisations; effective use of research, surveillance, and monitoring and evaluation (M&E) data; sustained and visible leadership at all levels; improved coordination at national and sub-national levels.
