The ACHIEVE Project

The Achieving Control of HIV/AIDS Epidemic through Evidence (ACHIEVE) Project is an IHVN Project funded by the US Government PEPFAR (US President's Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief) through Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). ACHIEVE is a follow-on grant to ACTION-PlusUp and ACTION Plus projects which provided continuity for AIDS Care and Treatment in Nigeria (ACTION) Project.

ACTION was implemented by the University of Maryland's Institute of Human Virology, Baltimore in partnership with IHVN. This Institute's capacity as local organization was built during the six-year implementation period of the ACTION Project. ACHIEVE focuses on the following areas: ART treatment for adult and children (including pregnant women); laboratory diagnosis and tracking of patients status; care and support for people living with HIV/AIDS and people affected by HIV/AIDS; and monitoring and evaluation of patients and program progress. Others include Prevention of Mother-to-Child-Transmission (PMTCT), HIV Testing Services, Support to Orphans and Vulnerable Children, and training in all the above areas.
