To facilitate Nigeria’s national response to controlling HIV, FHI 360’s Optimizing HIV Investments for Impact project works to reduce mortality and morbidity from HIV and reduce the number of new infections by 2021. The project also supports HIV and tuberculosis (TB) co-infection testing and treatment activities.
The project is funded by the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria (Global Fund) and builds on the results achieved under the previous Global Fund grant. The project works with local partners in six geopolitical zones: North Central, North East, North West, South East, South South and South West.
- Providing HIV testing services
- Providing services for the prevention of mother-to-child transmission (PMTCT) of HIV, including early infant diagnosis
- Strengthening community PMTCT systems, including targeted community HIV testing and community outreach
- Providing mentoring, training and coordination among health care providers for improved quality of HIV/AIDS service delivery
The Optimizing HIV Investments for Impact project focuses on women and children living with HIV, pregnant women, young women and girls, and key populations (sex workers, men who have sex with men, transgender persons and people who inject drugs).
