A Successful completion of Strengthening Integrated Delivery of HIV/AIDS Services
On the 7th of September, 2021, we marked the successful completion of Strengthening Integrated Delivery of HIV/AIDS Services and this was achieved by the generous support of the American people with funding the US President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) through the United States Agency for International Development (USAID).
The event was held physically at Sheraton Hotel and Suites, Abuja, and also virtually with some distinguished guests in attendance from around the world.

The Acting Country Director FHI360 Nigeria, speaking at the SIDHAS Closeout Ceremony
“Being giving the opportunity to implement a project as big and as complex as SIDHAS is the exception and not the norm, spending 10 years of implementation is a rare privilege and an honor for the SIDHAS team and a lot of the stakeholders who have participated in making this project a success… The SIDHAS main goal was to sustain cross-sectional integration of HIV AIDS and TB Services by building Nigeria’s capacity to deliver sustainable high-quality comprehensive prevention, care, and related services. Implementation strategies were tailored to achieve 3 key result areas:
Increase access and coverage to HIV and TB Services
Improve integration of quality services
Improve stewardship of Government, Ministries departments, and agencies for sustainability.
We are happy and proud to say that together, we have all achieved all of these goals and even more.”
One of the highlights of the event was the unveiling of the closeout documentation package housing; Technical briefs, Monographs, Success stories to mention a few.
