USAID/Nigeria Office of HIV/AIDS and TB envisions a Strategic HIV/AIDS and TB Response Program (SHARP) with an expanded effort with the Government of Nigeria (GON) to identify and support rapid scale-up of proven interventions through improvement of service delivery and strengthening of health systems. The activity shall focus its support for service delivery in nine intervention areas: HIV Testing Services (HTS), HIV diagnosis and treatment, HIV care and support, prevention of mother-to-child transmission of HIV (PMTCT), TB/HIV service integration, RH/HIV integration, orphans and vulnerable children (OVC), laboratory services, and health systems strengthening (HSS).
The activity is intended to substantially improve case identification for HIV and TB in prioritized locations and amongst key population (KP), maximize linkages to care and treatment for People Living with HIV (PLHIV) and OVC, optimize retention in quality care and ensure improved health outcomes for persons affected by both diseases. It will also promote the integration of HIV/AIDS services with other health programs and should produce substantive benefits including increased operational efficiencies, reduced stigma and discrimination associated with accessing services, and ultimately expanded HIV/AIDS service utilization.
