This is to bring to the notice of all stakeholders that the draft of the National Strategic Framework (2017-2021) NSF is out.
This framework is Nigeria’s fourth strategic document designed to guide the national response to HIV and AIDS. Prior to its development, the national HIV response was guided by the 2001-2004 HIV Emergency Action Plan, the 2005-2009 National Strategic Framework & Plan and the 2010-2015 National Strategic Framework & plan. The lifespan of the 2010-2015 National Strategic Framework and Plan was extended to December 2016 to enable the development of the follow on documents.
The process for the development of this strategic framework took into consideration, the country’s priorities for ending the HIV epidemic by 2030, and identified critical steps towards achieving them. The framework serves as the tool for mobilizing resources and uniting stakeholders towards achieving the national HIV control goals.
The current strategic document builds on the achievements of the previous National Strategic Framework with a focus on moving Nigeria to become an AIDS-free nation by 2030. It shall fast-track high impact, low cost interventions that are scalable. It also serves as an instrument to realize the national aspiration of achieving the 90-90-90 targets by 2020. It upholds the three Ones principles” – one coordinating agency, one national plan, and one monitoring and evaluation framework; recognizes the diversity in political structure, culture and geography; and respects the rights of all Nigerians to equitable access to HIV related services.
