The New National Strategic Plan

Old NSP coverThe HIV & AIDS and STI Strategic Plan for South Africa 2007-2011 (National Strategic Plan, NSP) marked the turnaround in the South African government's policy on HIV/AIDS when it was adopted by Cabinet in 2007. It is also against the targets in this plan, particularly the treatment target, that government has been held accountable since then.

However, the time-period covered by the plan ends at the end of 2011. A new NSP is being negotiated.

Is there enough money to meet the National Strategic Plan treatment target? Will it be spent properly?

President Zuma's speech

President Zuma's landmark speech on 29 October 2009 has acknowledged the extent of the AIDS epidemic and put the period of state-supported AIDS denialism behind us. The TAC and ALP unreservedly welcome it. In this context we comment on the health and HIV aspects of the budget speech.

Yesterday, President Jacob Zuma made one of the most important speeches in the history of AIDS in South Africa. In front of the National Council of Provinces (NCOP), he unequivocally acknowledged the devastation of AIDS on our country. With this speech state-supported AIDS denialism has been banished.

Health Minister and UNAIDS Executive Director visit TAC Khayelitsha, impressed by Khayelitsha health model

Minister of Health Barbara Hogan and incoming UNAIDS Executive Director Michel Sidibé paid a visit this week to TAC and MSF in Khayelitsha. Minister Hogan was highly impressed by her visit and has promised to look into Khayelitsha’s successful health model, used to fight against HIV/AIDS, and see if it can be transplanted into other struggling health districts countrywide.

She said the community had shown the world that proper partnerships, patient adherence and treatment literacy were not rhetoric, but could help the government to improve health delivery systems.

The Treatment Action Campaign, Cosatu, SACP, Amnesty international (SA) and the EC NGO coalition have tried to meet with the current MEC for Health in the Eastern Cape, Ms Jajula, since she took office in 2006 . Our numerous attempts to meet with her have all been met with rebuff; instead she has referred us to DDG Dr Diliza from clinical management services. Now, two years into her tenure as MEC, Mrs. Jajula is still not committed to meet with representatives from civil society.
