Nigerians and Americans in Partnership to Fight HIV/AIDS

Since its inception in Nigeria in 2004, PEPFAR has disbursed  more than 3.4 billion U.S. dollars (more than 544 billion Naira!) to support the Nigeria HIV/AIDS response.

  • Some measures of success include over 600,000  men, women and children currently on HIV treatment and the 480,000 people we have reached with HIV prevention messages and activities.
  • In Financial Year 2014 alone:
    • Nearly 8.7 million people have  received HIV counseling and testing services;
    • More than 55,000  pregnant women have been provided anti-retroviral drugs for the prevention of mother-to-child transmission of HIV;
    • Approximately 750,000 adults and children living with HIV/AIDS have received care to support quality of life, including TB/HIV care services and;
    • Nearly  700,000 children orphaned by AIDS and other vulnerable children received care and support.
    • Equally important, PEPFAR supports Nigeria in the critical areas of human capacity development, and strengthening health systems.

Before PEPFAR, HIV infection was a death sentence in Nigeria and in Africa in general, with entire villages being wiped out in some places.  Less than 5,000 Nigerians were on treatment (supported by the Government of Nigeria) in the entire country.  Over the past 10 years, PEPFAR has remained responsible for about 90 per cent of persons on treatment in Nigeria.
