RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT

In developing countries where health services are not adequately or equitably available,

it is imperative that the public health workforce be characterized by committed, well-prepared, skilled, and knowledgeable healthcare professionals. AFENET Nigeria strengthens the capacity of health officers at sub-national and national level through the NFELTP programme in Nigeria. Most NFELTP graduates have gone on to head state Ministries of Health and others become programme managers of various health interventions.Emphasis is placed on the following actions points

NAIIS PROJECT REPORT

The 2018 Nigeria HIV/AIDS Indicator and Impact Survey (NAIIS) is a cross-sectional survey that will assess the prevalence of key human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)-related health indicators. This survey is a two-stage cluster survey of 88,775 randomly-selected households in Nigeria, sampled from among 3,551 nationally-representative sample clusters.

The survey is expected to include approximately 168,100 participants, ages 15-64 years and children, ages 0-14 years, from the selected household. The 2018 NAIIS will characterize HIV incidence, prevalence, viral load suppression, CD4 T-cell distribution, and risk behaviors in a household-based, nationally-representative sample of the population of Nigeria, and will describe uptake of key HIV prevention, care, and treatment services.
