PEPFAR Nigeria Logo

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.

  • About 540,000 men, women and children are currently on HIV treatment.
  • In Financial Year 2013 alone:
    • Approximately 572,000 people have been reached with community outreach programs promoting Abstinence, Being Faithful, Correct and Consistent Use of Condoms (ABC), and other related preventive  strategies;
    • Nearly 6.7 million people have been reached with HIV counseling and testing services;
    • About 47,000 pregnant women have been provided antiretroviral drugs for the prevention of mother-to-child transmission of HIV;
    • Approximately 790,000 adults and children living with HIV/AIDS have received care to support quality of life, including TB/HIV care services and;
    • About 530,000 children orphaned by AIDS and other vulnerable children received care and support.

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.  Out of the 612,000 men, women and children on treatment in 2013, 540,000 are supported by PEPFAR funding.
