Location: Abuja,Nigeria
Employment Type: Contract
Duration: 10 days
Starting Date: January 2022 (10 working days)


  • All pregnant women are expected to be provided with quality service irrespective of their location and socio-economic status.
  • However, in Nigeria, only one third of pregnant women have access to services to prevention mother-to-child transmission of HIV (PMTCT) services.
  • Among the many reasons is the fact these services are only available in about 25% of the approximately 25,000 antenatal clinics listed in the health facility registry maintained by the Federal Ministry of Health.
  • Even at facilities that are listed as providing PMTCT services, the full range of HIV services they offer is uncertain as are the linkages between PMTCT, adult ART and paediatric ART services.
  • This situation has contributed to poor PMTCT and paediatric HIV indices. By the end of 2020, the coverage of PMTCT was as low as 44%.
  • Globally, Nigeria contributes the highest percentages of HIV positive pregnant women who are not on treatment (24%), babies with new HIV infections (14%), and children who die from AIDS-related causes (12%).
  • The National AIDS and STI Control Programme (NASCP) has worked with all 36+1 states to develop state-specific frameworks to remedy the poor PMTCT and paediatric indices.
  • The first key action in these frameworks is the identification and mapping of health facilities that provide antenatal care/PMTCT services.
  • During this process, the HIV and related services each facility provides will be documented and selected data extracted.
  • A substantial proportion of pregnant women receive antenatal care from traditional birth attendants (TBA) and other unskilled providers outside formal health facilities. Therefore, TBAs and their service delivery points will also be mapped as part of this process.
  • The information provided by this mapping exercise will be used to designate all providers of antenatal services / PMTCT as hubs or spokes and for other programmatic actions.


  • To provide technical assistance to NASCP in the planning, implementation, and documentation of the mapping of health facilities and informal service delivery locations that provide antenatal care / PMTCT services in 36+1 states.
