Chevron Nigeria Launches $1.4 PROMOT II HIV Project in Bayelsa


- Advertisment -

Chevron Nigeria Limited (CNL), administrator of the NNPC/CNL Joint Venture (JV), has reported the dispatch of a $1.4 million, two–year undertaking in Bayelsa State for keeping the transmission of HIV from moms to their infants.

The community–based Prevention of Mother-to-child Transmission venture known as (PROMOT II) is going ahead the heels of PROMOT (I), a four-year venture, which was previously actualized in Bayelsa State between September 2012 and March 2016 and to which Chevron conferred $5.3 million. Both periods of the venture are actualized in association with Pact, a global non–governmental association with dynamic programming in Nigeria for over 10 years.

The PROMOT (II) undertaking was formally dispatched on July 12, 2016 by Governor Seriake Dickson of Bayelsa State, who was spoken to by Chief David Serena Dokubo-Spiff the Secretary to the Bayelsa State Government (SSG), at Ebbis inn, Yenagoa, in Bayelsa State.

The Bayelsa State Governor expressed gratitude toward Chevron for giving extra subsidizes to the augmentation of PROMOT for an additional 2 years. “Chevron is a decent Company and I praise the Firm to provide extra provision for the augmentation of PROMOT for an additional two years, regardless of the unforgiving financial atmosphere.” He said.

He noticed that PROMOT (I) was an extraordinary accomplishment, as it added to the decrease of Bayelsa State’s HIV pervasiveness rates from 9.1% in 2010 to 3.8% before the end of the task’s third year in 2015.

The PROMOT (II) undertaking, being executed by Pact, will concentrate on promoting health care-seeking behavior among ladies of conceptive age (15–49) – incorporating those living with HIV-to use antenatal consideration (ANC) and Prevention of Mother-To-Child Transmission (PMTCT) administrations in three Local Government Areas (LGAs) in Bayelsa State: Ekeremor, Brass and Southern Ijaw.

It is normal that amid the 2–year range of the task, no less than 2,000 pregnant women will be tried for HIV and get their outcomes.
