Over the past fifteen years, the HIV/AIDS epidemic in PNG reached significant heights calling for renewed energies and directions to contain a fast spreading epidemic. Previous strategic plans developed to addreess the epidemic have laid the essential foundations upon which the next five years strategic focus should be built. Furthermore, the changing nature of the epidemic necessitates the need to embark on new initiatives while building on past experiences…
