Making Progress against AIDS?

The state of South Africa's response to the HIV/AIDS and TB epidemics

The National Strategic Plan on HIV/AIDS and STIs 2007-2011 (the NSP) was adopted in May 2007. This report aims to collate the available evidence to assess the extent to which South Africa is meeting the targets of the NSP, in particular the targets set for 2008. It shows that while there have been some areas of progress (such as increasing numbers of people on ARV treatment), overall the national response remains weak.
