HIV AIDS Prevention & Treatment
Member Associate of
PPFN as a sub-recipient to National Agency for the Control of AIDs (NACA) under the Global Fund Round 9. The overall goal of the project is to reduce HIV/AIDS-related mortality and morbidity. PPFN implement the Counselling, testing and testing in three (3) states (Abia, Edo & Anambra) in Nigeria. Counselling and testing(C&T) is an important entry point to HIV/AIDS prevention and care.
People who know their HIV status are better able to take appropriate individual and collective measures to prevent transmission of HIV. C&T also enables HIV positive people to enter treatment early, access care and support and so increase their chances of better health outcomes. It is expected that there will be an increased number of people who know their HIV status, entering into treatment, care and support, leading to reduced morbidity and mortality from HIV and AIDS in Nigeria at the end of the programme.
