Let our Actions Count: SA National Strategic Plan for HIV, TB & STIs 2017-2020
This is the fourth National Strategic Plan (NSP) that South Africa has adopted to guide its response to HIV, Tuberculosis and sexually
transmitted infections. Viewed together, the plans set out in the NSP provide insight into the path we have travelled as a nation to
overcome one of the most devastating human challenges of our time.
They show how our response to HIV, TB and STIs has evolved over the last two decades as we have come to understand the nature and
impact of the epidemics with regard to the factors that contribute to their spread, and the interventions that work best in reducing
infection, morbidity and mortality.
This NSP is a clear demonstration of the outstanding progress we have made. It is also a stark reminder of how far we still need to go.
