Private & public partnership against HIV in Nigeria
HIV Trust Fund of Nigeria is a US$150 Million private sector led Trust Fund promoted by Nigeria’s National Agency for the Control of AIDS (NACA) alongside the Nigeria Business Coalition Against AIDS (NiBUCAA).
The core objective of the fund is to ensure sustainable mobilization of resources from the private sector to make significant contributions towards the funding of HIV programs across Nigeria.
The fund is devoted mainly to funding strategic inputs such as Anti-Retroviral drugs, Test Kits, Reagents and the logistics to deliver these commodities to the facilities in different locations all over Nigeria where they are needed.
The immediate beneficiaries are therefore the HIV facilities while the ultimate beneficiaries are the Persons Living with HIV/AIDS in Nigeria.
Our aim is to foster an enabling environment for HIV positive pregnant and breastfeeding mothers and HIV exposed infants to access PMTCT services. We will do this by:
Expanding the ability of HIV positive pregnant and breastfeeding mothers to access ART.
Promote and equip a mix of conventional laboratory networks to expand access to early infant diagnosis as well as Point of Care testing for EID.
Strengthen PMTCT services in correctional centres and other closed settings.
We will foster an enabling environment for HIV positive pregnant and breastfeeding mothers and HIV exposed infants to access PMTCT services. We will do this by:
Increasing the percentage of pregnant women tested for HIV and increase the percentage of HIV positive women on ART (anti-retroviral treatment).
Our aim is to strengthen community systems to support care for HIV exposed infants. We will do this by:
Increasing the percentage of HIV Exposed Infants (HEI) on ART within 72 hours.
We will also increase the percentage of HEI given Cotrimoxazole Therapy (CTX) at 2 Months.
Increased percentage of HEI with PCR results received within 2 Months.
We want to increase the percentage of people who know that HIV can be transmitted from mother to child during pregnancy, during delivery, through breastfeeding.
Secondly to increase the percentage of people who know that the risk of MTCT can be reduced by mother taking special drugs.
