This National Strategic Plan on HIV and AIDS (NSP) describes how the unique challenges that HIV and AIDS pose to Rwanda’s economic and social development will be addressed between 2009 and 2012. With an estimated 3% of the adult population infected with HIV (1), Rwanda is much less affected than other countries in the region. Nonetheless, HIV transmission is far from being under control. And although nearly 80% of those in need are already receiving anti-retroviral therapy (2), the social, economic and health burden of HIV and AIDS on those affected is a heavy one.
