Description

At Chevron, we recognize the deep interdependence of healthy businesses and healthy societies. To improve the health of the communities where we operate, Chevron partners with non-profit organizations, such as Pact, to support initiatives that build local capacity and deliver lasting gains in the fight against HIV/AIDS. In 2012, Chevron and Pact established a community-based and government-supported Prevention of Mother-to-Child Transmission (PMTCT) outreach program across Bayelsa state, Nigeria. This partnership trains individuals on the latest PMTCT approaches and techniques, reaches the community with PMTCT messaging, and helps pregnant women take HIV tests, receive their results, and get counseled at health facilities.
