Position Paper: A Regional Leadership Advocacy Movement for LGBTI Champions in Africa

Considering the roles that leaders play in society and their responsibility to represent all their constituents, it is critical that leaders advocate on behalf of the LGBTI members of society.

The publication of the National Strategic Plan on HIV, Sexually Transmitted Infections (STIs) and Tuberculosis (TB) 2012 – 2016 marks a milestone in our nation’s response to the dual epidemics of HIV and TB. This five-year strategy reflects the progress we have made in achieving a clearer understanding of the challenges posed by these epidemics and the increasing unity of purpose among all the stakeholders, who are driven by a shared vision to attain the highest impact of our policies towards our long-term vision of zero new HIV and TB infections. Working together, over the past few years we have been able to register some marked progress in a number of critical areas in our response, such as a significant reduction in the vertical transmission of HIV and expanding access to a comprehensive package of HIV, STI and TB services.

National Strategic Framework for HIV and AIDS Response in Namibia 2010/11 – 2015/16

The National Strategic Framework for HIV and AIDS (NSF) 2010/11 – 2015/16 defines how we as Namibians – all sectors of society at all levels – are going to respond to HIV and AIDS in the next 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 (results) that all stakeholders will collectively contribute to. In this new strategy, we have mainstreamed gender and human rights in the implementation, and monitoring and  evaluation strategies.
