NIGERIA HIV/AIDS INDICATOR AND IMPACT SURVEY (NAIIS) PROJECT OVERVIEW

Government and the people of Nigeria
PROJECT DEVELOPMENT OBJECTIVES
To estimate the following in a household-based, nationally-representative sample of adults, age 15-64 years:
- 1) National HIV incidence (i.e., prevalence of recent HIV infection).
- 2) National and sub-national (State) prevalence of suppressed HIV viral load (VL) (Less 1000 copies/mL).
- 3) National and sub-national (State) HIV prevalence
To estimate the following among adults 15-64 years:
- 1) Prevalence of HIV-related risk behaviors, knowledge, and attitudes
- 2) Behavioral and demographic determinants of HIV incidence and prevalence
- 3) National prevalence of HBV infection
- 4) National prevalence of HCV infection
- 5) Prevalence of HIV/ HBV co-infection among HIV+ individual
- 6) Prevalence of HIV/ HCV co-infection among HIV+ individual
To estimate the following among adults ages 15-64 and children ages 0-14 years
- 7) Uptake of HIV-related services (especially prevention of mother-to-child transmission (PMTCT)-related services) and exposure to HIV interventions
- 8) Distribution of CD4 T-cell counts among HIV+
- 9) Prevalence of transmitted drug resistance (DR) To estimate the following among adults 18 – 54 years: 10) Population size of men who have sex with men (MSM), female sex workers (FSW), people who inject drugs (PWID) using the network scale-up method (NSUM)
To estimate the following among children 0-14 years:
- 11) National pediatric HIV prevalence
