CIHP fosters a strong drive in sustainable individual partnership through a continuum of care. Our approach which puts into perspective the family- a collection of individuals, provides structures within the communities (community based organization, peer support groups, health facilities etc.) to ensure services are accessible and equitable. This forms the pedestal on which strong partnership with individuals are sustained.
CIHP collaborates with private sector organization in meeting the health care need of individuals and communities in rural and semi-urban settings. Collaboration with the private sector is built upon workable MoUs, with focus on resource mobilization, resource leveraging and grant implementation. Implementation scope includes though not limited to expanded access and quality care in HIV services, reproductive health, malaria prevention, prophylaxis and treatment; and TB/HIV integration.
CIHP partners with comprehensive facilities, primary heath care centers and maternal and child health centers (public and private), with the aim of achieving a mutual goal of improved service delivery and access to health for clients and communities faced with limited resources.
CIHP partners with the government of Nigeria at the local, state and federal levels to implement comprehensive HIV prevention, care and treatment programs in supported states. We support the government to build the skills and capacities in the health sector, involve the policy makers, health care workers, community based organizations and persons living with HIV (PLWH) in the provision and delivery of HIV services.
COMMUNITY AND FAITH BASED ORGANIZATIONS
In recognition of the critical role CBOs/ FBOs play as leaders in shaping community values and behaviors, CIHP supports them to promote healthy behavior, reduce stigma, and motivate communities to utilize HIV services like HIV counseling and prevention with positives’ activities (Community sensitization, Free condom and IEC material distribution and much more). CIHP also provides capacity building support for delivery of health services, effective referral linkages, provision of basic commodities, as well as strengthening of human resources. In addition, CIHP leverages on the added value and established credibility of local faith and community leaders to foster community driven HIV related activities, such as community driven food banks and support groups to address nutritional issues amongst orphans and vulnerable children.
