The National Strategic Plan for 2011 - 2016 is being written as you read this issue of the Journal. Through its members, the Society has contributed a lot to the draft that it is hoped will be out in the next few weeks. The previous Plan was constructed in extremely difficult political circumstances (the then Minister of Health and senior Department of Health officials were still part of the old Mbeki era of HIV denial), and involved long meetings arguing over the most ridiculous points of science. This Plan is a completely different beast - broadly consulted in multiple meetings with every corner of society, with the DoH leading from the front. The writing team is reviewing a huge number of submissions, and integrating the suggestions into a strategic plan.
