Manto's 'plan'
Manto has today released her 10-point "Strategic Priorities for the National Health System, 2004-2009," plan. Following my post this morning, I am absolutely appalled that she finds no space in the plan for AIDS. How can AIDS not be on a ten point priorities list?

Tshabalala-Msimang tries to dodge the issue by saying "It does not mean that if a particular health matter is not on the list of priorities, the department will ignore it. This list represents those things that we must pay particular attention to amongst all the other things that we do every day."
