New Fast-Track HIV Plan Aims to End AIDS Epidemic in Nepal, by 2030
Abstract:
Nepal’s Minister of Health, Gagan Kumar Thapa, launched the National HIV Strategic Plan, NHSP 2016-2021: “Nepal HIVision 2020,” in Kathmandu on World AIDS Day. The 5 year plan commits to a Fast-Track approach that will accelerate action by focusing strategic investments in HIV programmes for and with key populations, in priority geographical areas. The NHSP ensures that everyone can access services for HIV prevention, treatment, care and support; leaving no one behind. Currently, about US$18 million is being invested in Nepal’s HIV response, with only about 15% from domestic resources. To Fast-Track the HIV response by 2020, it is estimated that annually US$ 30-40 million will be required over the next 5 years. #UNAIDS #HIV_Plan #AIDSEpidemic #2016
