2nd Annual Advisory Board and Strategic Planning Meeting
On March 1, 2019, the South Africa HIV ATTC hosted its Second Annual National Advisory Board and Strategic Planning Meeting. This meeting was attended by representatives from twenty unique organisations across South Africa including regional and national non-governmental organisations involved in delivery of care for HIV, substance use disorders (SUDs) and mental illness, as well as provincial and national government representatives. Of note, the National Department of Health and the South Africa National AIDS Council (SANAC), both of which are key parties leading the HIV response in South Africa, were in attendance. Attendees shared their expertise in these fields and provided strategic input to the South Africa HIV ATTC on its accomplishments in Year 1 and its Year 2 workplan. The ongoing strategic and technical contribution of the National Advisory Board will greatly assist the ATTC in ensuring the appropriateness and relevance of its training and technical assistance offerings.
