Written answers (Question to Health)

The National AIDS Strategy Committee last met on the 29th May 2012. The majority of the members/representative bodies of the National AIDS Strategy Committee were also members of the Steering Group and working Groups established to develop the Sexual Health Strategy. The development of a National Sexual Health Strategy is nearing completion. I intend to submit the Strategy to Government for approval as soon as possible.
