South Africa

Country Situation

Adult HIV prevalence (ages 15-49) in South Africa was estimated to be 19.1% in 2013. Among the Global Plan countries, it has the highest number of pregnant women living with HIV delivering (240,000) and the second highest number of children living with HIV (340,000).

In 2014, more than 95% of pregnant women with HIV received ARVs for PMTCT and 49% of children living with HIV received treatment.

South Africa has adopted WHO Option B+ in July 2014 with implementation expected to start in early 2015.  Given high service coverage in terms of ANC, skilled delivery, and PMTCT, South Africa is well placed to achieve Global Plan targets by 2015.

Country Milestones

  • In Progress

    Countries have conducted an expenditure analysis, harmonized expenditure categories as needed, identified financing gaps in their action plans and have develped and begun to implement a strategy increasing financial assistance from domestic and international sources to support the national EMTCT plan.

    National EMTCT plans are costed.

    National guidelines on PMTCT and infant feeding in line with WHO 2010 recommended guidelines on ARVs for PMTCT.

    National annual EMTCT progress report includes community (civil society) analysis of progress and feedback from civil society is reflected in revisions to national EMTCT operational plans. Community engagement milestone has been revised and will be reported in June 2013.

    Baselines for essential commodity needs for EMTCT have been established.

    Relevant support and management capacity has been increased (IATT focal points in place).

    Policy review has been conducted to dentralize and task shift essential HIV activities to the primary care and community levels.

    Country has reported on estimated number of new HIV infections among children averted and number of mothers kept alive.

    Estimated number of new pediatric infections reduced by 50% from 2009 levels in at least 10 priority countries.

    Relevant targets met in at least 50% of districts in the country.

    Every district reports regular supplies of drugs and commodities without stock outs.
