Substainable Treatment

To systematically transition the support for the programmatic aspects of the ART treatment programme to the Government of Botswana by December 2011 and enable the national programme to sustain quality and maintain treatment coverage.

ACHAP's support of the treatment programme during Phase I of programme implementation yielded significant gains in terms of national scale-up, coverage and reduction of mortality due to HIV/AIDS. Other partners including PEPFAR and the Clinton Foundation are providing additional support to the Government in the roll out of the ARV treatment programme. With support from these partners and ACHAP's continued support, the ART programme has steadily advanced. Given the changing financial atmosphere, there is a need for balanced resource input considering the need to scale up HIV prevention interventions to a level that will contribute to a significant reduction in HIV prevalence.
