To improve the quality of services provided to children that are orphaned or vulnerable due to HIV in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), the Institute of Human Virology Nigeria (IHVN) has met with stakeholders to review and re-strategize its activities from January to March 2018.

At the two-day meeting in Abuja, IHVN FCT Regional Manager, Dr. Olayemi Olupitan said the Institute is committed to continued collaboration with Community Based Organizations (CBOs) and other stakeholders for successful implementation of its care and support program for orphans and vulnerable children (OVC). She said that there would be strict supervision of activities of community-based organizations and they will be required to justify work done.

imagesShe advised the twelve CBOs present to “intensify efforts to meet targets and provide interventions to all beneficiaries.” Dr. Olupitan also assured the stakeholders that the Institute’s management is working towards addressing issues that challenge the program.

Discussions on the achievements, challenges and activities of the community-based organizations were also held and plans made to ensure quality and proper documentation.

Representatives from the Federal Ministry of Women Affairs and Social Development and FCT Social Development Secretariat were also in attendance.
