AIDSRelief Nigeria Final Report
From 2004 to 2012, AIDSRelief Nigeria expanded HIV care and treatment to nearly 110,000 patients, including more than 64,500 who enrolled on ART at 34 health facilities and 48 satellite sites.Consortium members Catholic Relief Services, University of Maryland School of Medicine Institute of Human Virology, and Futures Group worked hand-in-hand with local partners to build the skills and systems needed to support high-quality care. A deep commitment to partnership underscored AIDSRelief’s relationships and capacity strengthening activities, which culminated in late 2011 when two local partners—the Christian Health Association of Nigeria and the Catholic Caritas Foundation of Nigeria—won new grants to receive PEPFAR funds directly and assume full responsibility for managing the program.
This report outlines key outcomes and lessons learned during the eight-year program. It also describes approaches and methods that contributed to the program’s success.
