The Nigeria Country Office of the Joint United Nations Programme on HIV/AIDS and the African Business Coalition for Health have signed a Memorandum of Understanding to partner on joint initiatives that will expand access and quality of HIV/AIDS and health services in Nigeria and across Africa.

The MoU, which was signed by UNAIDS Country Director, Dr. Erasmus Morah, and ABCHealth Chief Executive Officer, Dr. Mories Atoki, spells out the areas of cooperation that encapsulates UNAIDS’ strategic priorities as articulated in the Global AIDS Strategy 2021-2026 and ABCHealth’s strategic priorities which include leveraging partnerships to drive sustainable development in Nigeria’s health space and Africa at large.

Speaking after the signing, Morah expressed his optimism about the opportunities the MoU would present adding that the partnership would bridge the gap in access to healthcare services, especially regarding HIV.

He said, “I am delighted to sign this MoU between the UNAIDS Country Office for Nigeria and ABCHealth, to signify the growing partnership between our two organisations. We both share the common goal of playing a more enhanced role in Nigeria’s HIV and health sector response, to accelerate equitable access to care, address institutional barriers to social justice and mobilise stakeholders in more fully resourcing for health.
