South Africa Department of Health Annual Report 2015/16
Partnerships and collaborative efforts have expanded our capacity to meet the National Development Plan (NDP) objectives of reducing the burden of disease, increasing life expectancy of 70 years, and having an AIDS-free generation of under 20’s by 2030. To this end, we have announced two major plans to be implemented during the current financial year: to provide access to ARV treatment to anyone confirmed HIV positive; and to provide PrEP (Pre Exposure Prophylaxis) to sex workers. We will allow
the evaluation of effectiveness of this programme to inform the further expansion to other vulnerable groups.
