The Institute of Human Virology, Nigeria (IHVN), funded by The Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria, is set to implement the Grant Cycle 7 (GC7) grant. This combined effort for tuberculosis (TB) and HIV is pivotal for the transformation of TB and HIV programs. Under the guidance of the National AIDS and STDs Control Programme (NASCP), the National TB and Leprosy Control Programme (NTBLCP), and the National Agency for the Control of AIDS (NACA), this project aims to increase the identification of all forms of TB in both the private sector and the community.

It also ensures prompt access to high-quality, patient-centered prevention and treatment through public-private sector partnership to address tuberculosis, active TB case-finding efforts and Community TB testing. The TB component of the grant will focus on 36 states and the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) for TB case finding, prevention, treatment, diagnosis, and community TB/HIV and Prevention of Mother to Child Transmission of HIV (PMTCT).

To meet these requirements, IHVN will strategically engage Sub-Recipients (SRs) across the country to meet and potentially exceed the set targets by the end of the grant cycle, which runs from January 2024 to December 2026.

Eight SRs – engaged the Association for Reproductive and Family Health (ARFH), Caritas Nigeria, Damien Foundation Nigeria, KNCV Tuberculosis Foundation Nigeria, Leprosy & Tuberculosis Relief Initiative, Nigeria (LTR), The Leprosy Mission Nigeria (TLMN), REDAID Nigeria, and Stop TB Nigeria – have been selected for the TB PPM, TB/HIV Community Active Case Finding, and TB/HIV sample referrals. Similarly, four SRs – Achieving Health Nigeria Initiative (AHNi), Excellence Community Education Welfare Scheme (ECEWS), Society for Family Health (SFH), and Network of People Living with HIV and AIDS in Nigeria (NEPWHAN) – have been chosen for the comprehensive HIV care grant.
Focus areas:

  1. To prevent new TB and HIV infections, ensure early diagnosis, and provide comprehensive care for affected individuals.
  2. Increase the coverage for TB services in the community and private sector as well as their contribution to National TB notification.
  3. Enhance nationwide TB and HIV prevention, care, and treatment
  4. Expand HIV testing for all pregnant women in the community toward preventing/eliminating Mother-To-Child Transmission of HIV.
  5. Strengthen laboratories, supply chain management, monitoring and evaluation and stakeholder accountability.
