Guidelines - Released in 2010
The purpose of the National Strategic and Action Plan (NSAP) 2011-2015 is to guide the national response of Lao PDR to HIV/AIDS. The review and revision of the NSAP was participatory, and this document reflects contributions from government, civil society, people living with HIV and development partners. The NSAP is aligned with the 7th National Socio Economic Development Plan (NSEDP) 2011-2015, and the 7th Health Sector Plan. The National AIDS Policy and the National HIV/AIDS Law have provided the guiding principles and overall strategic direction for the development of the NSAP 2011-2015. WHO six building blocks framework has been brought into consideration for situation and response analysis in order to integrate HIV interventions into health system strengthening for the next year plan (see annex 8). On the other hand, the NSAP is also one among several efforts of the government that contributes to the national poverty reduction programme.
