We’re on the frontline of AIDS in Nigeria, supporting communities respond to Africa’s biggest HIV epidemic.

Together with Frontline AIDS partners, we work with communities in Nigeria to realise their rights to access HIV services, especially adolescents, marginalised populations and those affected by gender inequality.

As the largest economy in Africa, and the African country with the largest population, Nigeria faces major challenges in responding to HIV. Despite its lower HIV prevalence of 2.8%, this still means 3.1 million people are living with HIV in Nigeria.

DID YOU KNOW?

  • 3.1 million people are living with HIV in Nigeria, the second biggest epidemic in the world.
  • 14 years in prison is the punishment for same-sex sexual relations.
  • Only 38% of people living with HIV know their status.

We currently do not have a Linking Organisation in Nigeria, but implement our programmes via a number of partners in the country.

Will you help us end aids?
