Global health sector strategy on HIV/AIDS 2011-2015
The WHO Global health sector strategy on HIV/AIDS, 2011–2015 guides the health sector response to human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) epidemics in order to achieve universal access to HIV prevention, diagnosis, treatment, care and support. The strategy:
- reaffirms global goals and targets for the health sector response to HIV
- identifies four strategic directions to guide national responses
- outlines recommended country actions and WHO’s contributions
The strategy promotes a long-term, sustainable HIV response through strengthening health and community systems, tackling the social determinants of health that both drive the epidemic and hinder the response, and protecting and promoting human rights and promoting gender equity as essential elements of the health sector response.
