Third Health Sector HIV and AIDS Strategic Plan (HSHSP- III) 2013 – 2017 (NEW)

Third Health Sector HIV and AIDS Strategic Plan (HSHSP- III) 2013 – 2017 (NEW) [Sep 05, 2014, 04:12:27]

The third HSHSP was preceded by review of the second HSHSP. As it was for its second strategy, the development of HSHSP III was informed by the respective National Multi-sectoral Strategic Framework NMSF 2013-2017 (NMSF III) that guides the national response to HIV and AIDS. This document was also informed by findings of the mid-term review (MTR) of the third Health Sector Strategic Plan 2009-2015 (HSSP III). Following lessons learnt at local and international level, a results based approach was applied for both the NMSFIII and HSHSP III. As a result, in order to maximize the use of scarce resources, HSHSP III focuses on interventions that have proven to be cost-effective as recommended in the World Health Organization’s “Investment Framework”. The use of a results-based approach in the HSHSP III is a very important development as this is where the national and global focus is being directed as we move towards the post-MDG era. During the past 30 years, Tanzania has faced a generalized HIV/AIDS epidemic. The country response has included putting in place a series of strategic plans and interventions in prevention, care, treatment and support. Some of the credible achievement so far, includes scaling up services for providing Antiretroviral medicines (ARVs) and gradually decrease of HIV prevalence to the currently estimated 5%. (THMIS 2011-12). The drop in HIV prevalence over the years is attributed to the robust national response mounted by the Government in collaboration with stakeholders from the very beginning of the epidemic. The focus of NMSF III is to achieve zero new infections, zero deaths from HIV/AIDS and zero stigma in Tanzania by 2017, HSHSP III therefore outlines how the health sector will contribute to the achievement of these national and global goals. The Strategic plan is a key instrument in guiding the implementation of prevention, care and treatment, and mitigation programs and it focuses on priority strategies that build towards achieving the strategic outcomes. It also outlines key indicators and targets to be achieved by year 2017. Also, the HSHSP indicators have been carefully chosen to measure implementation at all levels. The priority strategies defined in the strategy were crafted to fill the gap identified and have a causal relationship with the strategic outcomes. The Strategic plan includes a narrative which details some of the information listed above to link the strategic plan to the HSHSP III.
