Accelerating Control of the HIV Epidemic in Adamawa, Borno and Yobe (ACEBAY)
The Accelerating the Control of HIV Epidemic in Borno, Adamawa and Yobe (ACEBAY) Project is a robust, sustainability-focused, high-impact, evidence-based HIV/AIDS intervention funded by the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID). It aims at fast tracking the attainment of UNAIDS 95:95:95 targets and achieving epidemic control in the three states. The project is implemented by a consortium that includes AHNi as the prime, FHI360 as the technical partner, American University of Nigeria, Eklesiyar ‘Yan’uwa a Nigeria, and Federation of Muslim Women Association of Nigeria as local partners.
The objective of the project is to:
Increase resiliency, responsiveness, and accountability of the health system
Improve the Quality of HIV/AIDS and TB Services
Increase access and availability of HIV/AIDS and TB prevention and treatment services within primary care interventions
Cross cutting issues – Gender; Community linkages; Service provision during disruptions; COVID 19; Improving access to HIV services for resource constrained clients and households; Private Sector Engagement (PSE)
ACEBAY uses the trademark Total Quality Leadership and Accountability (TQLA) & Twinning approaches to address these objectives. The project team delivers targeted capacity transfer to service providers, local partners, and the Government of Nigeria to improve the control of the HIV epidemic using proven interventions, promising innovative practices, and purposeful engagement of beneficiaries. This is accomplished through co-creating strategies, activities, and client centric service delivery models that reach beneficiaries when and where they want. ACEBAY uses an experience-based, cost effective and sustainable technical approach that facilitates GoN leadership, accountability and ownership while maintaining fidelity of project implementation and attainment of results.
