Challenge

HIV and AIDS continues to ravage our economy up till this very moment. New infections are still rising, especially among children and young people. Deaths from AIDS related diseases are increasing rapidly, eventually peaking in 2005. Stigma is a huge problem for most people living with HIV. There are more than 15 million children orphaned by AIDS as well as having a devastating impact on families, these issues are also damaging to many countries' economies with Nigeria Inclusive.

Solution

This initiative will undertake sensitization seminars to educate Traditional and Religious Bodies, Primary, Secondary, Tertiary Schools in Plateau State Nigeria targeting 1 million young people with adequate information on HIV/AIDS in 5 months. Strategic partnerships with primary health care and non governmental organisations focused on health care services especially testing, counseling and treatment of HIV/AIDS operating in Nigeria would be established.

Long-Term Impact

This project will save the lives of 100,000 children, adolescents and young people. It will ensure that 5,000 adolescents and young people receive HIV tests, know their results, and are enrolled in treatment care and support on a yearly basis.
