USAID Says 94,000 Pregnant Women In Zamfara Are HIV positive

No fewer than 94,141 pregnant women are said to be HIV/AIDS positive in Zamfara.




A United States Agency for International Aids (USAID) funded programme said this through Management Services for Health Organisation the USAID Prevention and Organisational Systems-AIDS Care and Treatment (PRO-ACT).

The team leader of the organisation, Mr Aminu Sarki, spoke at the end of a seven-year treatment and support rolling plan for those living with HIV in the state in Gusau on Thursday.
Sarki said more than 500 women living with HIV received anti-retroviral drugs in the state during the period.
He said 4,436 persons living with HIV in the state were cared for by his organisation.

He explained that the project was aimed at strengthening the capacity of the country’s public, private and community sectors for sustainable HIV/AIDS and tuberculosis prevention, control, care and treatment within the health system.
He said his organisation had succeeded in providing services at four comprehensive care and treatment sites as well as trained health personnel in 19 Management Sciences for Health (MSH) supported facilities in injection, safety and waste management.


He said as the project was winding up in the state by November, there was need for the state government to takeover and continue in order to eliminate HIV in the state.

While applauding the services rendered by the organisation in the state, the Secretary to the State Government (SSG), Prof. Abdullahi Shinkafi, assured that the state government would soon study and takeover in order to sustain the programme.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the project was conducted in the five states of Niger, Kwara, Kebbi, Sokoto and Zamfara.
Highlight of the event was the presentation of certificates of appreciation to the programme participants. (NAN)

How won't it be so when they marry multiple wives without getting tested. Sharing diseases amongst themselves. Funny thing is, the rich ones don't have multiple wives. I taya for them joor.
And yes, I'm a northerner too, a christian though.

The rich ones have 4 wives per time..if they need to marry another one..they divorce one of the 4..that's how the cycle continues...and this is minus the concubines they keep.

Why won't they keep sharing it. When all the men do is have sex with both their multiple wives and mistresses who are also having sex with other men. They sleep with their fellow men, comes back home and sleep with their wives. And yea the circle continues.

Well said Godiya.the figure given covers only the pple that were tested, not to even talk of those in villages.with these findings I wonder if HIV can ever be eradicated in the north and Nigeria @large.

Shyla said...

Not surprised though. When one man alone will fire missiles into plenty women and wives. Distributors

adamawa's finest said...

Anon 12;46, these pple are very sturborn in nature no matter how much u talk believe me u will only wasting ur time.they only listen to Mallams tell them and the Mallams are the same pple that encourage them to marry upto 4wives knowing fully well that they can't cater for themselvs and the children these women will bare them,thereby sending these kids to the streets endangering their lives to beg and hawk, at the end of the day they become problems to us and the government. God will help us sha especially US in the north.
