The Strengthening Integrated Delivery of HIV/AIDS Services (SIDHAS) project works to sustain the integration of HIV/AIDS and tuberculosis (TB) care in Nigeria by building the country’s capacity to deliver high-quality, comprehensive prevention, treatment and services. The project is funded by the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID).

The project has three key areas in which it will produce results:

Increased access to high-quality, comprehensive HIV/AIDS and TB prevention, treatment and care services through improved efficiencies in service delivery

Improved integration of high-quality HIV/AIDS and TB services across multiple sectors

Improved stewardship by Nigerian institutions for the provision of high-quality, comprehensive HIV/AIDS and TB services

 AHNi is currently implementing the SIDHAS project operations and integrated services in collaboration with five primary partners:

The project was initially implemented in 36 states and the Federal Capital Territory. In response to the current strategic direction of the U.S. President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR), it currently operates in 13 states, with a focus on HIV epidemic control in 14 high-burden local government areas in the states of Akwa Ibom, Cross River, Lagos and Rivers.

The project was initially implemented in 36 states and the Federal Capital Territory. In response to the current strategic direction of the U.S. President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR), it now operates in 13 states, with a focus on HIV epidemic control in 14 high-burden local government areas in the states of Akwa Ibom, Cross River, Lagos and Rivers. The recent NAIIS results made available in March 2019 necessitated the Surge response in Akwa Ibom State from April, 2019 which is being optimized in Cross River State in July 2019. Some of the early results of the Surge response in Akwa Ibom State is 10,000 individuals newly initiated on ART within 10weeks of the Surge response.
