Abstract

"The PNG National Strategic Plan for (NSP) HIV/AIDS 2004-2008 has been produced through the collaborative effort of many individuals and organisations. The NSP reflects the contributions of professionals and volunteers working in the field of HIV/AIDS prevention and care, as well as people whose experience in HIV/AIDS work is limited but who recognise the importance of a multi-sectoral approach to meet the challenges of the epidemic in Papua New Guinea. The NSP process began in June 2003 with the staging of the situation analysis workshop within which seven (7) focus areas were identified to form the basis of the strategic planning process. These were; Treatment, counselling, care and support; Education & prevention; Epidemiology & surveillance; Social and behavioral change research; Leadership, partnership and coordination; Family & community; and Monitoring and evaluation. On the basis of these focus areas, seven (7) working groups were established and tasked to go through the process of developing a strategic framework for each focus area. Terms of reference (annexed) were developed to guide the different working groups in performing their respective tasks. The process of developing the NSP was inclusive and highly participatory. It involved a total of 112 individuals representing different organisations from all sections of the community. The NSP Steering Committee provided the overall direction and guidance on the work of the different working groups supported by a Secretariat established basically to support the Steering Committee as well as providing secretariat and logistics support to the seven working groups."
