The Catholic Caritas Foundation of Nigeria (CCFN); also known as Caritas Nigeria is the specialised agency of the Catholic Church in Nigeria for coordinating development and Humanitarian interventions. Since its establishment in 2010 by the Catholic Bishops Conference of Nigeria (CBCN), Caritas Nigeria has reached millions of  beneficiaries  and communities across the length and breadth of Nigeria. Caritas Nigeria is a member of Caritas Internationalis, a global confederation of 166 member nations that shares in the common vision of being the outreach of the Church to those in need.

Caritas Nigeria organized a Rapid Test Recency infection training for facilities working on HIV epidemic control from Tuesday, April 26th 2022 to Friday, April 29th 2022.

The participants at the four-day training comprised of representatives from Enugu State Ministry of Health and three representatives each from the ten health facilities in Enugu State are working with Caritas Nigeria on the project.

Speaking shortly after the event, Caritas Nigeria Advisor, Laboratory Services, Fabian Mgbeahuruike said that the rigorous training will hopefully stimulate activities by participants in their various facilities across the State.
