Mission, Vision, Values
“We exist to end the HIV epidemic in Papua New Guinea”
The National AIDS Council Secretariat subscribes to this mission statement as it is the organizations reason for existence.
“We will reduce the prevalence of HIV & STI’s to less than 0.5% and eliminate HIV transmission in “mother-to-child” by 2030”
**This is in line with PNG Vision 2050, to “reduce HIV and AIDS prevalence from 1.28% of the population aged 15 – 49 to 0.1%” by 2050 (PNG Vision 2050 18.104.22.168). This supports the goals of the MTDP III, Sustainable Development Goals, the National Health Plan 2010 -2020; the Alotau Accord.1 & 2, and the National Population Policy.
