Strategic Planning and Innovation (SPI)

About SPI

Created in 2004, SPI's mission is to identify actions that strengthen the collective response to HIV/AIDS, TB and malaria, three rapidly evolving epidemics. SPI works on the basis that the combined success of HIV/AIDS, TB and malaria programmes depends on appropriate designs and implementation.


SPI's work is centered on the following main objectives:

  • Fostering the involvement of all stakeholders in planning and implementing combined disease programmes to increase their coverage.
  • Formulating innovative policy options towards universal coverage of services for the control of HIV/AIDS, TB and malaria.
  • Identifying ways to strengthen health systems while scaling up disease-control programmes.
