Prevention & Organizational Systems – AIDS Care & Treatment Project
The Prevention and Organizational Systems – AIDS Care and Treatment Project (PRO-ACT), a part of the President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR), was implemented in Nigeria from 2009 through 2016. Pro-ACT followed on an initial more limited two-year project, the LMS AIDS Care and Treatment (LMS ACT) that provided treatment for AIDS patients in six of Nigeria’s states, all in the northern half of the country. Pro-ACT, while following on ACT and operating initially in the same six states (Kogi, Kwara, Adamawa, Taraba, Kebbi and Niger) had two fundamentally additional aspects – a focus on community prevention, and organizational systems strengthening. Its objectives were to maintain the 17 Comprehensive Care and Treatment (CCTs) developed under LMS ACT, expand access, and strengthen systems.
