Contribution

Please tell us how your organization will contribute to the Global Plan to Stop TB by briefly describing its involvement in any of the areas of work listed below:

TB Care Delivery:
The HIV prevalence in Nigeria is 4.1% meaning that more than 95% of Nigerians are HIV negative. Current National HIV data also state that the ratio of people on treatment and new infections is 2:5. Nigeria is also has the fourth highest burden of Tuberculosis in the world. It therefore behoves on us to educate Nigerians about the modes of prevention and transmission of HIV in order to reduce dramatically the rate of new infections.

The impact of other infectious and communicable diseases like Malaria, Tuberculosis, Polio, Hepatitis, Cholera, Filaria, and Onchocerciasis is significant in many communities in Nigeria. Family planning and maternal and child health are also grey areas in our quest to achieve sustainable development. JHF utilizes a mix mode of activities to mobilize and info-educate communities on the modes of prevention of these public health issues and where and how to obtain help when necessary.

JHF has carried out several outreach awareness campaigns in rurla communities around Abuja, in Benue State and Rivers State in 2011 to continue to raise awareness about HIV, TB, and DRTB and also available service delivery points.

TB-HIV:
We organize seminars and workshops on HIV-TB coinfection bringing together a mix of participants to discuss and proffer recommendations which could alleviate the issues or could be forwarded to policy makers

Research:
It is true that programmes have better outcomes when they are implemented based on research findings. JHF embark on community based survey to answer simple research questions which enhances our programme implementation processes. Consultants are engaged in the areas required to give expert advice during surveys. Results of the surveys when completed are shared with the communities in a dissemination workshop and published in peer review journals.
