Accelerating Control of the HIV Epidemic in Adamawa, Borno and Yobe (ACEBAY)
The Accelerating the Control of HIV Epidemic in Borno, Adamawa and Yobe (ACEBAY) Project is a robust, sustainability-focused, high-impact, evidence-based HIV/AIDS intervention funded by the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID). It aims at fast tracking the attainment of UNAIDS 95:95:95 targets and achieving epidemic control in the three states. The project is implemented by a consortium that includes AHNi as the prime, FHI360 as the technical partner, American University of Nigeria, Eklesiyar ‘Yan’uwa a Nigeria, and Federation of Muslim Women Association of Nigeria as local partners.

Scaleup of Treatment and Prevention of severe acute malnutrition (SAM) and moderate acute malnutrition (MAM) among Children 0 - 59 months and pregnant and lactating women (PLW) in Banki-Bama LGA
In September 2021, the Famine Monitoring System (FMS) classified Bama as a high famine risk area and shows an extreme level of acute malnutrition among new arrivals of internally displaced populations (28.7% GAM). More than 50% of households relied on either crisis (17%) or emergency (38%) coping strategies to meet their food needs, which has heightened the economic vulnerability due to the negative impact on the future productivity of the most affected households. This has likely contributed to the deterioration of the nutrition and food situation and the high GAM rate (10%) in Borno state, as identified in the Cadre Harmonisé analysis conducted in October 2020 and the Nigeria Food Security Outlook, October 2020 to May 2021.
Impact Against TB/HIV and AIDS
Nigeria has the second highest burden of HIV in Africa, which presents a formidable challenge to a nation that struggles to provide the full range of needed HIV services.
This 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.
Using its Hausa-based early grade reading approach, which integrates numeracy and gender themes into its materials, RANA will build the capacity of 600 teachers to implement effective instruction and assessments.
