Consultation on three related global health sector strategies: HIV; viral hepatitis; and sexually transmitted infections (STIs)

As the world looks to 2030, and prepares to meet the challenges of an ambitious set of Sustainable Development Goals, the World Health Organization is developing three related global health sector strategies: HIV; viral hepatitis; and sexually transmitted infections (STIs). The 2016-2021 strategies will follow a similar structure, seek to ensure critical linkages across, and synergies between, these important health areas, and, will be finalized for consideration by the 69th World Health Assembly in May 2016.

While the HIV and STI focused drafts build on previous strategies this will be the first ever global health sector strategy for viral hepatitis.

We are now seeking stakeholder input into these strategies. From the following links you can access an online survey as well as early drafts of the three strategies and other background documents.
The deadline for responses is 30 April 2015.

HIV: www.who.int/hiv/strategy2016-2021/en/
Viral hepatitis: www.who.int/hiv/topics/hepatitis/strategy2016-2021/en/

STIs: www.who.int/reproductivehealth/ghs-strategies/en/

Responses from individuals, organizations and/or consolidated responses from constituency groups are welcome. A summary of the consultation will be compiled into a report to be published in June 2015 and will be shared with global partners - including partners also developing strategies for the post-2015 period.

Notably, UNAIDS is developing a multisectoral HIV strategy for 2016-2021 with a series of stakeholder and on-line consultations. WHO’s HIV strategy will form a critical and complementary component of the broader UNAIDS effort, and will also be informed by the UNAIDS strategy development process.

The Global Fund is also developing a strategy for 2017-2021 and results from our consultation process will be shared appropriately.

We are also embarking on a number of regional, civil society and other stakeholder consultations – a summary of opportunities to engage in the strategy development process is included in the above web links.

We are coordinating with the UNAIDS Secretariat in planning the consultations related to HIV to ensure coherence across the WHO and UNAIDS processes and inputs. We hope that you will be able to contribute to both processes.

Please take time to complete the survey(s) relevant to you. Your inputs are important to us - while all three health areas have generated significant progress in recent years, gains are unevenly and inequitably distributed, disease incidence is increasing in some countries and regions, and too many new infections are still occurring particularly among key populations. Most people in need still do not have access to available and emerging treatments. The world needs a revitalized effort to change the trajectory of the responses to HIV, viral hepatitis and STIs and your inputs to the 2016-2021 strategies will help ensure we have a robust strategic framework in place to guide the health sector response.

You do not know what God is up to. You may feel overlooked, and nobody is giving you credit. Do not worry. God knows how to promote you out of season.
