Nigeria: Nigeria Uses Internet to Educate Citizens About HIV/AIDS (September 2006)


Through a partnership between AIDS Information Center International (AICI) and the U.S. Embassy in Nigeria, people living with and affected by HIV/AIDS have a new source for information about HIV/AIDS on the Internet. The new Web site provides a central place Nigerians can visit for accurate and trustworthy knowledge.

The site provides community news, links to newspaper articles on HIV/AIDS, information about AICI, and contact information for the organization. Visitors to the site will also find a link to the AICI blog, where organizers post more detailed information about local events.

AICI, which is supported by the U.S. President's Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (Emergency Plan/PEPFAR), works to disseminate information about HIV/AIDS in the federal capital territory of Abuja and surrounding communities. The program targets women, youth, children, and people living with and affected by HIV/AIDS. AICI was initiated by the Nigerian Library Association and is managed with support from the Public Affairs Section of the U.S. Embassy in Nigeria.
