The program is a three-year (January 2021 – December 2023) grant that complements the efforts of Government of Nigeria, the U.S. President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) and other partners to ensure that Nigeria pushes towards epidemic control by attaining the 90-90-90 UNAIDs previous target and move to the new UNAIDs goal of 95-95-95 by 2030.
The National Aligned HIV/AIDS Initiative (NAHI) grant’s Program Implementation Plan (PIP) details the departures and nexus between three HIV grants periods namely: the grant extension period (January 2018 to June 2019) and the HIV impact grant (July 2019 to December 2020) and the incoming (January 2022-December 2023). On the overall, the new grant will build on the results achieved through existing grants while contributing directly to the attainment of the Nigerian National HIV Strategic Plan goals and objectives by expanding access to HIV/AIDS prevention, treatment, care and support in Nigeria for both the general and especially key population including adolescent and young populations with the aim to reduce HIV incidence and its associated morbidity and mortality.
While the HIV previous grants focused largely on reaching general population with comprehensive HIV Prevention, Care and Treatment services; the new grant will continue to reach the general population while intensifying interventions with the key populations (FSWs, MSM, PWID, AGYW and other vulnerable population) in a bid to drive the country towards the attainment of the ambitious 90:90:90 UNAIDS goal.
The grant works in 17 states of Nigeria and key intervention areas include:
Anti-Retroviral Therapy (ART) intervention in 2 states: Anambra & Ebonyi;
Adolescent Girls and Young Women (AGYW) intervention in 3 states: Abia, Anambra & Taraba (proposed for PAAR);
Key Population intervention (FSWs, MSM, PWID, AGYW and other vulnerable population) in 13 states: Abia, Anambra, Ebonyi, Edo, Enugu, Gombe, Imo, Kaduna, Kano, Kwara, Taraba, Oyo & Plateau;
Gap filling Harm Reduction intervention in 7 states: Abia, Akwa-Ibom, Gombe, Oyo, Cross River, Rivers & Lagos.
