Publication Date 
32 p

This paper presents key principles and checklists for implementing a national response to HIV and AIDS, and especially for operationalising National Strategic Frameworks. It highlights the need for multi-sectoral planning and action, and for "transformative methodologies" to broaden understanding of the epidemic in terms of individual behaviours as well as collective culture and norms. It is primarily intended for use by national HIV/AIDS coordination and management bodies responsible for strategic planning and management of national HIV/AIDS responses, and uses language that may be difficult for others to follow. It places the concept of mainstreaming within the context of a national response. The final section addresses the role of National AIDS Councils and Commissions in monitoring and evaluation and information management of the national response
