Nigeria now includes MENTAL HEALTH in HIV/AIDS care and support — Nigeria

From our member in Nigeria, Gede Foundation, we are very excited to announce that
for the first time Nigeria has included mental health into routine HIV/AIDS care and support in the National HIV AIDS Strategic Framework 2017-2021 (Gede Co-Chaired the Technical Working Group which looked at the key issues).

Gede has been published in BMC Public Health in a peer reviewed article on the prevalence of common mental disorders in a large sample of people living with HIV/AIDS in Nigeria. Access article from link below:
