Meeting Target & Maintaining Epidemic Control (EpiC)
The Meeting Targets and Maintaining Epidemic Control (EpiC) project works to sustain the integration of HIV/AIDS and tuberculosis (TB) care in Nigeria by building the country’s capacity to deliver high-quality, comprehensive prevention, treatment and services. The project is funded by the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) under the U.S. President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR).
The project has three key areas in which it will produce results:
Increased access to high-quality, comprehensive HIV/AIDS and TB prevention, treatment and care services through improved efficiencies in service delivery
Improved integration of high-quality HIV/AIDS and TB services across multiple sectors
Improved stewardship by Nigerian institutions for the provision of high-quality, comprehensive HIV/AIDS and TB services
FHI 360 is currently implementing the EpiC project in collaboration with two primary partners:
Achieving Health Nigeria Initiative — integrated services
Howard University Pharmacists and Continuing Education Center — pharmacy services
Past partnerships include Association for Reproductive and Family Health, which focused on community-based services; German Leprosy and Tuberculosis Relief Association on TB and HIV integration; Deloitte Consulting, LLP on organizational development; the Axios Foundation on logistics and supply chain management; Population Council on community operations research to prevent mother-to-child transmission; and the University of Nigeria on health economics operations research. In addition, the project previously engaged two subcontractors, Hygeia Foundation and Health Systems Consult Limited, to support private-sector engagement in two states.
The project initially worked in 36 Nigerian states and the Federal Capital Territory. In 2015, the geographic scope of the project was streamlined to 13 Nigerian states, with a focus on HIV epidemic control in 14 high-burden local government areas in the states of Akwa Ibom, Cross River, Lagos and Rivers.
Currently EpiC operates in two states, Akwa Ibom and Cross River, with a focus on achieving HIV epidemic control across those two states.
