Through our partnership with Action Health, Inc. and National Agency for the Control of AIDS (NACA), WUEE’s Right to Health work seeks to promote maternal, newborn, and child health by combating HIV/AIDS and malaria in Akwa Ibom State. Our Health Programs cover 3 main areas: HIV/AIDS prevention, training of TBAs, and holistic maternal/newborn/child health.

HIV/AIDS Prevention

HIV/AIDS Prevention

As the HIV/AIDS rate stands at 7.2% in Akwa Ibom State alone, WUEE campaigns to teach the public how to care for those living with HIV, as well  as how to prevent transmission of the virus.
