Abstract and Keywords

Nigeria bears one of the largest burdens of HIV infection in the world. Key features of the country’s response to the HIV/AIDS epidemic illustrate the experiences of many low- and middle-income countries. The country’s response is the result of an interplay of policy and political commitment, the work of professionals from multiple disciplines, cross-sectoral programming, and financing from domestic government budgets, household expenditures, and development partners. Sustained progress in Nigeria’s response to HIV/AIDS requires improvements in the effective coverage of services along the spectrum of prevention, treatment, care, and support for those infected. These will also benefit from an effective health system in the context of Universal Health Coverage. Achieving sustainable financing remains a key challenge.

Keywords: Nigeria, HIV, AIDS, HIV financing, health system strengthening
