The Prevention Organizational Systems AIDS Care and Treatment Project (Pro-ACT) is a PEPFAR-funded associate award with the goal of building the capacity of Nigeria’s public, private, and community sectors for sustainable HIV and AIDS and Tuberculosis prevention, control, and treatment. Between August 2009 and July 2013, Pro-ACT supported the governments of six states and operated 30 comprehensive HIV and AIDS treatment centers.
In August 2013, Pro-ACT changed its geographical focus to five states: Niger, Kwara, Kebbi, Sokoto, and Zamfara. The project, which was extended to November 2016, supports 41 comprehensive HIV and AIDS treatment centers. With its main office in Abuja, Pro-ACT is decentralized to the state government level and has offices in each of the five states, bringing technical support closer to the areas of greatest need.
