HIV/AIDS: Ondo Govt. Organises sensitization Programme

As part of Ondo State Government’s efforts aimed at combating the spread of the deadly Human Immune Virus (HIV) and Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome (AIDS) in the State, the State Ministry of Health in conjunction with the Ondo State Agency for the Control of AIDS (ODSACA) organised a Stakeholders’ sensitization forum in Akure, the Ondo state capital.

The Stakeholders forum with the theme:” Getting to zero summit” had in attendance Officials of the State Ministry of Health, those of ODSACA, Persons Living with HIV/AIDS, representatives of partner agencies and Non-Government Organisations and members of the public.

The State Commissioner for Health, Dr. Dayo Adeyanju and the Project Manager of ODSACA, Dr. Dayo Adegbulu while fielding questions from Newsmen spoke on the whole essence of the Stakeholders’ sensitization forum.

One of the victims of the dreaded disease; Mr. Emmanuel Aladenusi in an interview disclosed that he’s been living with HIV since 1989 said he has been able to live right with his status; urging the HIV positive persons not to stigmatize themselves and also the public to desist from stigmatizing them.

It is hoped that at the end of the forum, those present would have gained one or more relevant knowledge to either combat or prevent the spread of the dreaded disease.
