The study examined client perception and attitude toward decentralization of antiretroviral treatment services from central hospitals to primary health centers. The findings imply that scale-up of treatment services to primary health centers would be widely accepted and probably would result in increased uptake. But, this must be accompanied by targeted behavior change interventions for clients who, for the fear of disclosure and stigma, would still not access care from proximate facilities.

This paper reports on the effort and progress in piloting World Health Organization Regional Office for Africa (WHO-AFRO) recognition and accreditation preparedness in six health facility laboratories in five different states of Nigeria. The effort resulted in measurable and positive impact on the laboratories. Further improvement toward a formal international accreditation status and scale-up of WHO-AFRO Stepwise Laboratory (Quality) Improvement Process Towards Accreditation (SLIPTA) implementation in Nigeria is recommended.
