HIV and Development

  • Responding to the emerging needs of the country vis-à-vis the 4th AIDS Medium Term Plan (AMTP), the present national strategic plan on AIDS, the Programme has five key components: (1) Leadership for Effective and Sustained Responses to HIV and AIDS; (2) Strengthening Institutional Capacities and Partnerships on HIV and Migration; (3) Mitigating the Economic and Psychosocial Impacts of HIV and AIDS; (4) Strategic Information and Community Leadership among Men Who Have Sex with Men (MSM) and Transgender (TG) Populations; and (5) Knowledge, Communication, and Advocacy to Promote Deeper Understanding of HIV and AIDS.

  • This Programme is directly aligned with the United Nations Development Assistance Framework (UNDAF) 2012-2016 and the AIDS Medium Term Plan (AMTP) 2012-2016. It seeks to strengthen capacities of national and local governments and affected communities to plan and implement sustained, comprehensive and effective responses to HIV and AIDS in the following areas of interest: (1) Development and resource mobilization for the implementation of gender-responsive, age-sensitive and context-specific normative guidelines for targeted HIV prevention, treatment, care and support programmes; (2) Policy reforms at the national and local levels; (3) Institutional capacity enhancement of the national and local AIDS coordinating bodies; and (4) Capacity development of national government agencies, Regional AIDS Assistance Teams, local government units and civil society organizations, including empowerment of community groups, particularly men having sex with men (MSM) and transgender groups, to participate in the country response to AIDS.
