Mental Health Working Group Meeting

Today, the Gede Foundation Co-Chaired the latest meeting of NACA’s (National Agency for the Control of AIDS) Technical Working Group Sub-Committee on Mental Health, tasked with developing ways in which mental health (focusing mainly on depression, substance abuse and other neurological challenges often faced by people living positively with HIV-AIDS) can be practically integrated into HIV-AIDS care and support. The Sub-Committee has six months to investigate a range of initiatives and will then report back to NACA’s Technical Working Group on the option(s) which can be implemented most effectively into the daily, routine activities of those tasked with HIV-AIDS care and support. Gede’s role on the sub-Committee places the Foundation of cutting edge policy development within the context of HIV-AIDS care and support in Nigeria. Sub-Committee meetings will continue to be covered on the website blog page
