The National Strategic Framework for HIV and AIDS (NSF) 2010/11 – 2015/16 defines how Namibia – all sectors of society at all levels – are going to respond to HIV and AIDS in six years. In developing a National HIV Strategic Framework (as opposed to another Medium Term Plan - MTP), Namibia has shifted the planning paradigm from focusing on service delivery only, to understanding how the service delivery efforts will lead to changes in the lives of the targeted audiences, and therefore impact on the epidemic itself. In so doing, Namibia has identified national priorities and articulated national targets that all stakeholders will collectively contribute to. In this new strategy, the ministry has mainstreamed gender and human rights in the implementation, and monitoring and evaluation strategies.
