"The National HIV/AIDS Support Project is a health, governance, education and community development project. It is designed to work in all sectors and at all levels of the community and will empower a number of groups (refer Attachment A) to undertake HIV/AIDS prevention and care activities. A sustainable response to the epidemic will be achieved by facilitating community-led responses and ensuring that PNG's political, legislative and policy environment is supportive of activities to prevent the spread of HIV/AIDS. Component 1 - Education, Information And Advocacy; Component 2 - Counselling, Community Care And Support; Component 3 - Policy, Legal And Ethical Issues; Component 4 - Monitoring, Surveillance, And Evaluation; Component 5 - Clinical Services And Laboratory Strengthening; Component 6 - Support To The National AIDS Council Secretariat. The Project supports PNG's National AIDS Council (NAC) to implement the PNG National HIV/AIDS Medium Term Plan. AusAID is taking a flexible approach to the Project to facilitate the implementation of the Plan and for the Project to respond to changes in the PNG environment. A study on the potential economic impact of an HIV/AIDS epidemic in PNG was completed in February 2002."
