APIN Oyo And Ondo State Teams Receives Award From CDC for Achieving HIV Epidemic Control!

Two of our supported states, Oyo and Ondo, have moved from Surge status to HIV Treatment Saturation / Epidemic Control status.

This means that the states have succeeded in identifying the targeted number of existing People Living with HIV (PLHIV) and placing them all on Antiretroviral Therapy (ART). The certificates of graduation were presented at the 2nd Biannual Program Performance and Stakeholder Engagement meeting hosted by our funders, the U.S Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (Uscdc Nigeria).

Going forward, the states will focus on preventing new HIV infections, retaining the PLHIV who are already on ART and supporting them to achieve viral suppression while mopping up any remaining cases who aren’t already on treatment.

Kudos to our staff in Oyo and Ondo, and to the state governments for this amazing feat!
