MHRP in Nigera focuses on developing leadership, clinical, laboratory and logistical capabilities within the community to build a sustainable health capacity and infrastructure.
In an effort to enhance capacity and improve service delivery to prevent transmission of HIV/AIDs, MHRP initiatives in Nigeria support prevention programs and interventions focused on military and civilian populations in NMOD health facilities and barrack communities. Some of the core program areas include community outreach on sexual prevention, biomedical transmission prevention, and HIV counseling and testing. The program also trains point-of-service pharmacists on how to properly dispense ARVs, manage drug combinations and mitigate treatment failures.
A strong partnership with the Nigerian military and its large network of medical facilities and well-trained personnel creates a supportive climate and framework for program evaluations, surveillance and research.
