Nearly 1/3 of Nigerians travel outside their community for HIV health care: new study
A new study of a large-scale OVC project in Nigeria has revealed that nearly one third of HIV clients travel outside of their community -- known as Local Government Areas, or "LGAs" -- to access health care. The study was carried out by the PEPFAR-supported 4Children project to ensure its activities are located in areas where they will reach as many clients as possible. The study provides recommendations for helping the project reach its goals of attaining epidemic control.
