Zambia Sets Out to Create New National Strategic Framework on HIV/AIDS

November 8, 2013

"Zambia is in the process of coming up with another national strategic framework on HIV/AIDS as the southern African nation presses on with its resolve to eliminate the pandemic," Xinhua reports in an article examining the country's efforts. Joshua Banda, chair of the National AIDS Council, "who was speaking at the start of a three-day convention called to review the progress made in fighting the pandemic and shaping a new roadmap for the fight, said the government is now more than resolved to overcome the specter of HIV using multi-pronged approaches, adding that the country has so far made tremendous gains in the HIV response with a review of its strategies for the last five years showing impressive epidemiological indicators," the news agency writes. "As the country embarks on a process of coming up with a new strategic framework, which will run from 2016 to 2020, there is need to come up with high-impact interventions," according to Xinhua (11/7).
