					Strategic Plan 2007 - 2011
This plan reflects consultations to date. We have attempted to link a number of expected outputs to
one central objective and at the same time describe possible key activities to realise these outputs.
The outputs and accompanying key activities listed, do not necessarily represent a final list and is
therefore still up for discussion

To reduce the vulnerability of persons with disabilities in Africa to the impact of HIV and AIDS.

By 2011, a coordinated response involving persons with disabilities is underway in at least 12 African
countries to achieve inclusive national HIV & AIDS policy and disability-inclusive programming.
