Review of the national response to sexually transmitted infection and HIV/AIDS in Sri Lanka
AbstractAlmost twenty years after the emergence of HIV and AIDS in Sri Lanka, the third review of the national response to sexually transmitted infections (STIs) and HIV/AIDS was carried out by a team composed of members drawn from national programmes and sectors external to the National STI/AIDS Control Programme and staff of international organizations, overseas HIV initiatives and universities, the World Health Organization, the United Nations Children Fund, the World Bank and the United Nations Programme on HIV/AIDS. The objectives of the review were to identify the achievements of the national response to HIV by reviewing the activities of the National STI/AIDS Control Programme as well as those of other government and nongovernmental organizations, especially in areas related to STI/HIV prevention, care and treatment for the period 2000-2006, and to provide recommendations for the revision of strategies and interventions for the development of a new strategic plan for 2007-20 2011.This document describes the findings of the review team, the conclusions it arrived at and recommendations.
