The Multisectoral Aids Management unitent

MULTI SECTORAL AIDS MANAGEMENT

The Multi-sectoral AIDS Management Unit (MSAMU) operates in accordance with the National Strategic Plan (NSP) and the Provincial Strategic Plan (PSP). These two strategic plans focus on the drivers of the HIV and TB epidemics, guided by the following objectives:

  • To address the social and structural barriers to HIV, STIs and TB prevention, care and impact;
  • To prevent new HIV, STI and TB infections;
  • To sustain health and wellness; and
  • To promote and support the protection of human rights and to help improve access to justice.

The work of MSAMU is aligned with the Tshwane Vision 2055, the city’s Integrated Development Plan (IDP) and the Service Delivery Budget Implementation Plan (SDBIP). The Tshwane Vision 2055 provides a framework towards ensuring that the AIDS epidemic is brought under control in the City. This is done through restoring the quality of life of individuals, families and communities who have been affected by the epidemic and by reducing and eventually stopping new infections. Furthermore, the city aims to minimise the impact of the epidemic on the economic, social, cultural, spiritual and emotional fibre of the city and to give a new future to the children of the city who have lost much to the epidemic.

Strategies of MSAMU include:

  • Door-to-Door Education Programme;
  • Candle Light Memorial; and
  • World AIDS Day commemoration.
