ACE Consortium for Cluster 6 (Bayelsa, Edo, and Lagos states) brings a suite of mutually reinforcing technical expertise to address existing HIV service delivery gaps. It employs a client-centered approach that integrates contextual health systems strengthening (HSS) with comprehensive HIV care, including critical services like gender mainstreaming, mental health, and psychosocial support (MHPSS) interventions, and COVID-19 prevention integration services. ACE_6 will ensure that no one is left behind in line with the PEPFAR COP 21 target for going green in pursuit of epidemic control. Every component of the ACE_6 project will promote access to timely and comprehensive HIV/TB services using client and family center stigma/discrimination-free strategies, audio-visual privacy and confidentiality, gender sensitivity, and trauma-informed care that will promote the well-being of target beneficiaries.

ACE_6 will align activities in Bayelsa, Edo, and Lagos to scale up comprehensive client and family-centered HIV/TB case finding, linkage, care, and support services, improve maternal and child healthcare, optimize, and improve Gender, MHPSS, Infection Prevention and Control (IPAC) interventions. ACE_6 IIA will also facilitate the expansion and strengthening of the logistics and supply chain management systems at the facility and community levels, within the context of the COVID-19 pandemic. As an overarching strategy, the ACE_6 IIA will strengthen collaboration with the Government of Nigeria (GON), public-private partnership, legislative advocacy, domestic resource mobilization, partnership with multi-lateral and other donor agencies for improved ownership, and sustainability of the response.

In this ACE 6 project, JSI Research & Training Institute, Inc. (JSI) will contribute specialists in health financing, financial management, and public-private partnerships to expand access and uptake of quality HIV/AIDS and TB services.
