The US President Emergency Plan For AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) has spent about $4.7billion in the past 14 years to fight HIV/AIDS in Nigeria.

The Country Director, US Public Health Service, Mahesh Swaminathan, stated this on Thursday at a press conference attended by Nigerian officials on the forthcoming Nigeria Aids Indicators and Impact Survey (NAIIS) in Abuja.

NAIIS is a national household survey to be conducted by the Nigerian government with support from PEPFAR and other partners.

The survey, which will begin in June, will last for about six months and cover the 36 states and Federal Capital Territory (FCT), aims to reach a sample size of about 170,000 people.

“PEPFAR in collaboration with the Global Fund is partnering with Nigeria to fund this survey. Despite previous efforts that has been made, the US government is glad to support this survey.
