The Second Botswana National Strategic Framework for HIV and AIDS 2010-2016

The purpose of this document is to outline the national priorities for the national response to HIV and AIDS for the period 2010 to 2016. These priorities are based on the evidence accumulated  locally and are augmented by international best practices. The overall philosophy behind the Second National Strategic Framework is one of prioritization, focus, and intensification. It is through collective and concentrated efforts around these priorities that we will be able to maximize the impact of the national response.

Botswana National Policy on HIV and AIDS, 1998

The HIV and AIDS epidemic is one of the most important current global socio-economic and development problems. Unprecedented partnerships have been formed between countries, organisations/ groups and individuals in the attempt to halt the spread of the Human Imrnuno-deficiency virus, and provide care for those who are affected.

Botswana National HIV and AIDS Strategic Framework, 2003 - 2009

Botswana's National HIV/AIDS Strategic Framework 2003-2009 represents a departure from the past and into new ways of thinking and acting in the fight against HIV and AIDS. It takes the experience of building multi-sectoral responses to HIV/AIDS, both here in Botswana and internationally, and moulds them into an aggressive, forward-looking framework with the central aim of ensuring and driving implementation. This departure, this new thinking, is absolutely critical for Botswana, as it presents a crucial and definitive opportunity to radically address the epidemic and avert what is already becoming a national catastrophe. Botswana can be seen as a leader in efforts to combat the epidemic and there is no other option but success. It must be remembered by all that what is done here will serve as the foundation of a renewed and aggressive response to the epidemic in the sub-region, the continent, and beyond.

Botswana UNGASS Country Report 2008

The HIV/ AIDS epidemic continues to exert untold misery on Batswana’s well being despite our multi-sectoral, multi-level response efforts. For over twenty years we have witnessed persistent erosion of national development efforts on many fronts, leaving behind heightened dependency rates, increased demand for both institutional and home-based care for the sick, and emotionally depressed citizens as families lose parents, guardians, breadwinners and children. This does not augur well for national social welfare, and it is against this background that Botswana renews its commitment to the Declaration of Commitment on HIV/AIDS. We recognize the need to reverse the epidemic in all its spheres of impact - there is no room for complacency.
