Job Type: Short Term

Background and Job Purpose of the Assignment

  • In West and Central Africa, only 26 percent of children and 41 percent of adults living with HIV had access to treatment in 2017, and AIDS-related deaths have only declined by 24 percent.

The country has made little progress in reducing new HIV infections in the past seven years with a reduction only five percent. Although HIV treatment coverage has increased, just one in PLHIV is on treatment (33 percent). In 2016, Nigeria had 220,000 new HIV infections, including 37,000 children newly infected with HIV due to mother-to-child transmission, with around 160,000 deaths from AIDS-related diseases.

Reports have shown that the crisis has impacted negatively on regular access to HIV/AIDS care, treatment and support services.
