The multi-sectoral National Strategic Plan (NSP) for HIV and AIDS was developed and launched in 2006. It covers a five-year period from 2006-2011. The NSP was developed through an extensively participatory process following the joint review of the national multi-sectoral response to HIV and AIDS in 2005. From October 2008 to April 2009, the National AIDS Commission in collaboration with its stakeholders and partners who are involved in the national response to the HIV and AIDS commissioned the Mid-Term Review (MTR) of the NSP. The purpose of the review was to take stock of the national response through determining progress made, identifying challenges and programme gaps together with emerging issues. The objective of the NSP review was to establish the extent to which the plan had been implemented and achieved its set objectives and targets in the four thematic areas of (a) management, coordination and support, (b) prevention, (c) Treatment, care and support, and (d) impact mitigation. The review further considered emerging issues, lessons learnt, gaps and challenges encountered during the implementation of the NSP.
