SANAC Men’s Sector National Strategic Plan Implementation Audit Report

As the convenor of the Men’s Sector, in September 2011 Sonke hosted a summit to prepare the Men’s Sector’s submission for the development of the National Strategic Plan (NSP) 2012-2016. As a result, the final NSP 2012/2016 document includes men’s involvement in HIV and AIDS prevention and treatment as a key priority area.

The overall purpose of this implementation audit is to monitor the progress and impact of interventions and programmes provided by implementing agencies, both government and the civil society, towards achieving the NSP Men’s Sector goals. Specifically the audit assesses the extent to which and how the NSP was implemented at the district level towards the goal of improving men’s attitudes and behaviours related to HIV treatment adherence as well as men’s health issues in general.
