Nutrition Experience

ARFH was a Principal Recipient for HIV  2007-2017.  Various civil society organizations and  support groups of PLHIV were established in many communities in Nigeria. In addition, 740 community based organizations were trained on Home Based Care and equipped with kits where 215,463 PLHIV were provided with home based care services. In all of these programmes, nutrition and household economic strengthening were major components of the grants.
