The purpose of this review of the National Strategic Plan (NSP) and the Provincial Strategic Plans (PSPs) 2007-2011 is to contribute to the evidence base to inform the development of the next round of strategic plans. It consists of an assessment of the achievements, challenges, missed opportunities and emerging issues to prioritise in addition to documenting lessons learnt and good practices.
Methods used to review the NSP 2007-2011
The Terms of Reference required a review of NSP implementation by consolidating the following:
1. A desk review on NSP implementation at national level.
2. The 9 provincial reviews of the NSP/PSPs 2007-2011.
3. Analysing data from programme and governance review tools.
4. Incorporating data from the community dialogues.
In addition, the process to obtain information from government departments on the programmatic components of their HIV/AIDS strategies failed, for various reasons, to obtain substantial data from all but the DSD and DCS. For this reason, the report on government’s response is largely from these departments and the DPSA.
