    • A WHO HIV/AIDS strategy for 2011-15

    • Be aligned with broader strategic frameworks
    • Considers the changing international public health architecture
  • 3. Presentation structure
    • Structure and key features of Strategy
    • Consultation process
    • Next steps
  • 4. Background
    • Three elements
    • Reaffirms global goals for the health sector response to HIV
    • Proposes four strategic directions to guide national HIV responses
    • Provides a framework for WHO action at global, regional and country levels (a "corporate approach to HIV")
    • Alignment & coherence
    • Aligned with UNAIDS Strategy 2011-2015
    • Coherent with other health sector strategies (e.g. reproductive health; Stop TB; STIs; Public Health, Innovation and IP)…
    • Compliments strategies of partners (e.g. PEPFAR)
  • 5. Strategy Outline
    • Introduction
      • Alignment with UNAIDS and other strategies
      • Principle features and guiding principles of strategy
    • Strategic context ("situation analysis")
    • Global vision, goals and four strategic directions ("the onion")
    • Policies and interventions for countries
    • WHO action
    • Strategy implementation
  • 6. Section I: Introduction
    • Principal features
    • Defines health sector role within a multisectoral response
    • Global in scope but recognizes diversity of epidemics and need to tailor responses in countries.
    • Embeds HIV in the broader health agenda, aims at programmatic linkages and broader health outcomes.
    • Aims to enhance effectiveness and efficiency, ensure equity and improve quality and coverage of HIV programmes
    • Looks towards sustainability through strengthening health and community systems and addressing social determinants.
  • 7. Section II: Strategic Context & Considerations
    • HIV service coverage low, poorly targeted & poor quality
    • Linkages between HIV and other programmes not optimized – e.g. MNCH, TB services
    • Weak health systems hinder HIV responses – e.g. data use, access to medicines, inadequate human resources
    • Structural barriers impede access to services and increase vulnerability – e.g. stigma in the health work force that marginalizes most-at-risk populations
  • 8. Challenges
    • Less than 40% of people living with HIV know their status
    • Only 28% of children in need of HIV treatment had access in 2009
    • Coverage of prevention interventions among groups at higher risk for HIV infection remains <50% in many countries
    • In low income countries only 48% of blood donations were being screened in quality assured manner
    • 38% of countries reporting experienced at least one or more stock-out of antiretroviral drugs in health facilities in 2009
    • 18% of patients initiating treatment were lost to follow-up during the first year
  • 9. Evolving context – public health
    • Early treatment for people with HIV is not only life-saving but a critical element of prevention
    • Strong HIV response contributes to reducing maternal and child mortality
    • Antiretroviral drugs given to pregnant and breastfeeding women can virtually eliminate HIV in children - Elimination of transmission from mother to child by 2015
    • New prevention technologies (eg, microbicide gels, PrEP, etc.)
    • Efficiency gains through greater integration and decentralization of services
  • 10. Section III: Global Vision
    • A world free of new HIV infections and where all people living with HIV enjoy long and healthy lives
  • 11. Section III: Global goals
    • Overarching goals
      • Universal access to HIV prevention, treatment and care
