Pact Nigeria, NDLink's newest Partner!

 

 
Pact’s work in Nigeria has focused on supporting partners to advocate for better service delivery, improved governance systems, better response to the HIV/AIDS epidemic, maternal and child health issues, strengthening civil society and increasing civil society and government linkages. With Pact’s proven capacity development approaches and tools, Pact has seen Nigerian civil society organizations improve their capacity, strengthen partnerships with each other, government, and the private sector, and deliver high quality health services in communities across Nigeria. Pact’s portfolio of work includes funding for health programming from USAID, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, and Chevron. 

Since 2005, Pact has helped forge partnerships between government and civil society, resulting in the passage of four significant national bills to fight corruption, including 2011’s landmark Freedom of Information Act. 

Current project(s) in the Niger Delta:

  • Prevention of Mother to Child Transmission of HIV/AIDS (PROMOT) in Bayelsa State
  • Rapid and Effective Action in Combating HIV/AID (REACH) in Rivers, Bayelsa and Ondo State
