Regional health sector strategy on HIV, 2011-2015
AbstractThe Regional Health Sector Strategy on HIV, 2011-2015 addresses the regional differences and specificities of the HIV epidemic between and within Member States. The targets and strategies in this document are consistent with the global health sector strategy for HIV 2011-2015 with clear focus on priorities most relevant to this Region and draws upon the achievements and lessons learnt during the past years. The strategy contributes to the broader, multisectoral response to HIV and describes the future directions and focus of work in the health sector response to the HIV epidemic in order to achieve universal access to prevention, diagnosis, treatment and care. It provides a framework for priority interventions that shall eventually result in reducing the burden of HIV. Ultimately interventions promoted by the strategy will contribute to attaining the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), in particular MDGs 4, 5 and 6 (i.e. Reducing child mortality, Improving maternal and child health, and Combating HIV, malaria and other diseases) and achieving universal access to prevention, treatment, care and support.
