Physicians (Doctors) for Social Justice (PSJ)


 

Vision and Mission

We envision a society where every individual in every rural community lives in optimal health and wellbeing.

A community of development workers and health professionals who seek to ensure that every family in every rural community in Nigeria has optimal access to essential services including healthcare, water and sanitation, education, and sustainable livelihood through  direct healthcare services delivery, community mobilization and engagement, capacity development, and micro grant making to vulnerable households.

 

Strengthening Capacity of Communities for Sustained Delivery of Integrated HIV and SRH Services (STRECOMS) Extension Project, is a PMTCT project being implemented from a generous grant by ViiV Healthcare through the Positive Action for Children’s Fund (PACF). The STRECOMS Project implementation which commenced in January 2018, is building on the achievements and impact of STRECOMS original project which ran from 2014–2016, by focusing on communities and schools, and targeting to keep 20,000 HIV negative adolescent girls and young women within the age group of (10-24) negative, and prevent unintended pregnancies among HIV positive women while linking women and their families to PMTCT and ART services in collaboration with communities, health facilities and the local health authorities.

STRECOMS also continued with capacity building and mentoring support to the Association of Women Living with HIV in Niger State (ASWHAN), embedding two program facilitators to provide ongoing technical assistance, as well as providing transport and other logistical support to ASWHAN as they embarked on policy advocacy to improve HIV and PMTCT governance in Niger State. In this regard, ASWHAN is now actively engaging the Ministry of Health (MOH), the Niger State Agency for the Control of AIDS and the department of Health in the two LGAs where project is being implemented, advocating for improved budgetary allocation for HIV and PMTCT programs, as well as for optimal integration of family planning into ongoing PMTCT
