In the heart of Nigeria, the states of Jigawa, Bauchi, and Kano grapple with the HIV epidemic amidst socio-cultural complexities. Despite their relatively low HIV prevalence, these regions confront formidable challenges. Cultural practices and hidden behaviors—ranging from engaging in sexual relationships with multiple partners to clandestine drug use—fuel the spread of HIV and TB. The need for robust screening and treatment is evident, yet a performance gap persists, particularly in tuberculosis (TB) screening among people living with HIV (PLHIV). The launch of the USAID-funded Accelerating Control of HIV Epidemic in Nigeria – Cluster 2 (ACE C2) project signifies a crucial turning point in our fight against HIV in those states. Led by Georgetown Global Health Nigeria (GGHN), the project is a collaborative effort that embodies the spirit of USAID’s community programs. Our vision is clear: we are dedicated to expediting the journey towards the control of the HIV epidemic and to establish a resilient and sustainable healthcare infrastructure in Jigawa, Bauchi, and Kano.
