Technical support for the assessment and improvement of 27 priority HIV care sites in Niger



Niger is among the countries considered to have low HIV prevalence with 0.4% of the general population infected according to the results of the 2012 EDSN/MISC IV. However, the behavioural and serological surveys conducted in 2008, 2011 and 2015 show that the epidemic remains concentrated in certain sub-groups of the population. According to the last survey, these are female sex workers (PS – 16.6%), men who have sex with men (MSM – 17.2%), prisoners (1.9%) and refugee populations (1.6%).

In addition, in 2018, Niger undertook a review of its response to HIV/AIDS following an institutional diagnosis and an audit of the active file which revealed that more than 90% of the active file was concentrated in 27 sites. It is in this perspective that specific support was recommended to Niger in order to improve the quality of care for people living with HIV in an efficient manner. Solthis was therefore asked to coordinate a more in-depth assessment of the needs of these 27 sites and to formulate and implement an improvement plan for each site.
