Founded in 2005, Amana Association is a network of people living with HIV/AIDS in Niger State, which has one of the highest prevalence rates in the country. The organization aims to promote and protect the rights of HIV/AIDS-affected widows and vulnerable children in a context where high levels of stigma combined with rural poverty and the refusal of the state to recognize the magnitude of the issue contribute to poor access to treatment and prevention information.
