Technical Brief: Creating Sustainable Government Commitment in Kwara State, Nigeria


The Prevention and Organizational Systems - AIDS Care and Treatment (Pro-ACT) project is a seven-year project (2009-2016) funded by USAID and implemented by MSH in five Nigerian states: Niger, Kwara, Kebbi, Sokoto, and Zamfara. Pro-ACT strengthens the capacity of Nigeria's public, private, and community sectors for sustainable HIV/AIDS and TB prevention, control, care and treatment integrated within the health system.

In Kwara state, government HIV/AIDS spending was consistently low as a result of not having the financial and management framework necessary to facilitate funding of the transitioned services. To significantly increase domestic HIV/AIDS funding, strategic support by the Pro-ACT project in collaboration with the government of Kwara State was provided to strengthen the budgetary process, develop the state strategic plan, and engage with key stakeholders, among other priorities.
