Advocacy

 This is a vital tool for the success of our programs, HIFASS has progressively engaged in different levels of advocacy: Global, Regional, and National.

HIFASS’ advocacy aims to reduce the human and economic burden of HIV/AIDS by influencing people, policy and systems to bring about sustainable change. By inspiring people across the globe, we are helping to keep HIV/AIDS high on the list of international development priorities.

Our objective is to establish and strengthen engagement with key stakeholders and decision makers all over the globe. We work in a number of ways to achieve this by attending and partaking in various congresses and conferences. HIFASS has also used Health Diplomacy as an instrument of strategic policy advocacy with both political and military leadership that is beneficial to both military and civilian populations as well as to regional integration (ECOWAS) and global stability.

Community Health Services/Outreaches

 As part of a holistic approach to making basic health care available to all, HIFASS organizes and participates in outreach programs, health fairs and other related activities at the community level to complement its other humanitarian services. HIFASS sponsors and also collaborates with the NMOD, SACAs, LACAs and other CBOs, to carry out various awareness and community outreach activities

Health Systems Strengthening

 HIFASS strives to make high quality health care available to people around military formations in Nigeria.  Some of the greatest barriers to increasing access to essential health care are health worker staffing, infrastructure, health commodities, logistics, monitoring and evaluation and effective financing. HIFASS uses the human resource entry point to focus on effectively expanding access to good quality health services thereby contributing to the human resource workforce goal which is to get the right workers with the right skills in the right place with the right tools doing the right things. We work in close cooperation with local governments, health officials, and other public and private partners to identify needs and implement lasting solutions.

Orphans and Vulnerable Children Services

 As HIFASS expands its contribution to health services delivery and safety, the development of new strategies and involvement in areas requiring service to the grass roots, particularly at the family level, has become necessary. HIFASS has therefore embraced the opportunity presented by its long standing capacity focus in HIV care to be part of the efforts to provide good quality sustainable OVC care
