This chapter reviews Nigeria's response to its HIV epidemic. The health system in Nigeria is widely regarded as being ineffective and inefficient. To stand any chance of developing a more effective response to HIV, the system needs extensive reform. This needs to be built on strategic partnerships within and between the local, state, and national levels of all actors involved in health and development. The capacities of ministries to support the overall national HIV response need to be improved. Also, despite recent attempts to galvanize the private sector to support the ongoing national response, its involvement is still very low and needs to increase.
