Barriers to HIV Care in Rural Communities: Case Study of Abuja Municipal Area Council

RESEARCH PROPOSAL Chapter One: Introduction The world continues to battle the HIV pandemic along with related social and economic challenges. Strategies applied in developed countries seem to be containing the spread; however, results of efforts in many African countries are daunting. At the end of 2009, an estimated 33.3 million people were infected with HIV globally, 22.5 million (68%) of global total were in Sub-Saharan Africa, and about 2.98 million in Nigeria with second highest after South Africa of people living with HIV in the World (UNAIDS , 2010). Based on field research conducted by the researcher in Abuja Municipal Area Council, most free HIV care centers are mainly located in urban areas in spite of higher prevalence in rural areas. This corroborates with the findings of Kombe (2007) who noted that very few healthcare workers are deployed to the rural areas. This raises questions about whether the HIV treatment services is able to reach the rural groups given that inaccessibility of good health care centres, stigmatization and discrimination, etc., stands as barriers to effective HIV care in the rural area. Hence, this study intends to expand on these aforementioned barriers document as well as proffer solutions to them.
