Only 10% of 5 million Nigerians living with HIV/AIDS are walking around with this deadly disease without knowing due to lack of awareness and proper education. Nigeria is third only to South Africa and India in HIV/AIDS infected countries in the world. And Sub-Sahara Africa has just over 10% of the world population, but it is the home of 70% of all people living with HIV/AIDS.
Our focus is on Nigeria where HIV/AIDS is fanning with the speed of a hurricane. HIV/AIDS is a major development concern facing Nigeria. Any serious discussion about alleviating poverty in Nigeria must confront the challenge of AIDS and severe conditions it has created within families. N4H is committed to reduce the devastating and destabilizing impact of AIDS to human suffering especially to families that are affected.
Since N4H is about HIV/AIDS solution in Nigeria and Africa, we have started a comprehensive education, prevention, care and support programs and services in Ile-Ife and Ilesha in Southwest of Nigeria. We have continued to make great strides by putting smiles into the faces of people infected and affected by HIV/AIDS through our dynamic approach to reduce the spread of HIV/AIDS and to help young men and women affected by HIV/AIDS reach their potential and goals in life.
We provide proper education, awareness creation, care support, advocacy and sensitization, confidential HIV Testing Centers and Voluntary routine counseling.
Scale up capacity building, treatment of opportunistic infections and Anti-Retroviral Therapy (ART). This will overtake non-challant attitude of a large population of Nigerians to HIV/AIDS. We protect sanctity of human life and disabuse the minds of the society on Anti-stigma and discrimination against people living with HIV/AIDS, empower them to be self-reliant and enjoy a healthy, dignified and sustainable quality of life.
Teaching about faithfulness in marriage and abstinence if unmarried.
We provide access to HIV/AIDS information through educational and marketing strategies, Newsletter, Brochure, posters, Radio/T.V commercials and N4H website.
We educate the youth on the dangers of HIV and create awareness on reproductive health through schools, colleges, soccer fields, offices, motor parks etc.
We Offer income-generating activities and livelihood support to HIV/AIDS patient and give support such as food and school fees to orphans and children.
We establish a good rapport with patient and bond! Show them love, sense of belonging, lend an ear, pour them a cup of tea and do effective follow-up.
