With only a year until 2020 – and the deadline to reach the 90-90-90 targets – South Africa is dangerously off track. Currently 7.1 million people are living with HIV in the country. New HIV infections remain high, according to the Thembisa model1 at 275 000 in 2017, higher than the 231 000 estimated in the Human Sciences Research Council (HSRC) survey.

Either way, given the current trajectory it seems highly unlikely that South Africa will reach the target of less than 100,000 new HIV infections by 2022 as outlined by the National Strategic Plan on HIV, TB, and STIs (NSP). The Thembisa model projects that new infections will only drop to around 198 000 by 2022.

SECTION27, the Treatment Action Campaign (TAC), Medecins sans Frontieres, Positive Women’s Network (PWN), the Positive Action Campaign (PAC), National Association of People Living with AIDS (NAPWA), SANERELA and Health Gap put forward community priorities for the President’s Emergency Plan For AIDS Relief to take into consideration as it prepares is Country Operational Plan for South Africa.
