The zero draft of South Africa’s next National Strategic Plan on HIV, TB, STIs is being shared for review and comment in the midst of ongoing national consultations and consideration by technical working groups. This version is informed by consultation and research to date, while remaining open to forthcoming inputs. The content is not comprehensive nor is it finalised; key targets and priority actions are still being discussed. This is a strategic document, with detailed thematic monographs which accompany the final product. Operational and implementation plans will be developed at a later stage. The NSP development team welcomes feedback of any kind on the zero draft at this stage.

The National Strategic Plan (NSP) is the strategic guide for the country’s comprehensive response to HIV, tuberculosis and sexually transmitted infections. It is revised every five years.
The South African National AIDS Council has launched a series of stakeholder and online consultations to feed into the development of the plan. The consultation process, which will run until the end of September 2016, is open to everyone to share information, ideas and experiences.
Please tell us:
- What new interventions should we consider?
- How do we improve implementation?
- What can we do to have the greatest impact?
- How do we tailor our programmes to for specific communities and vulnerable populations?
- How do we address the social conditions that contribute to the spread of HIV, TB and STIs?
- How do we increase access to treatment and keep people on treatment?
- What goals should we set for 2022?
We cannot hope to end AIDS-related deaths and new TB and HIV infections without you.

The National Strategic Plan (NSP) 2012 – 2016 in a nutshell
The National Strategic Plan (NSP) 2012 – 2016 is the country’s third master plan that outlines how the country will respond to the prevention and treatment of HIV and AIDS, TB and STIs over the next five years. It seeks to improve on the achievements of the last Plan (NSP 2007 – 2011), which massively scaled up our anti-retroviral treatment (ART) programme and sought to decrease the number of new HIV infections.
