USA Reduces Aid To 1.9m Nigerians Living With HIV Over Gay Support by weezii(m): 10:10am On Feb 25, 2016

ABUJA— ABOUT 1,884,618 Nigerians living with Human Immuno Virus, HIV, risk death if the Federal Government refuses to provide N58 billion for Anti Retroviral Therapy, ART, for their treatment.
About 95 percent of the infected patients largely depend on the ART from the United States, US, government and Global Fund, which has been drastically scaled down as a result of Nigeria’s refusal to accede to gay union.

This was as revealed, Tuesday, by Rep Afe Olowookere, who made the revelation in his presentation on behalf of House Committee on HIV/AIDS.
Olowookere further disclosed that support from the US government and the Global Fund are massive as both are responsible for about 95 percent of the national HIV/AIDS treatment programme in the country.

He said: “Presently, the US government has scaled down its scale-up of service in the remaining 737 Local Government areas.
“In addition, the US government has also withdrawn support for laboratory services which the people living with HIV, PLWHIV, on ART requires to conduct periodically to monitor their state of health.”
Also, provision for HIV/AIDS activities to NACA under the 2016 budget proposal is only N1.5 billion, a significant reduction from the N10 billion given to it last year under the Subsidy Reinvestment Programme, SURE-P.

He said to achieve the 2030 global target for 90-90-90, the Federal Government must put more money into the national response to AIDS, else the country risks another wave of HIV/AIDS epidemic.

The country has an estimated 3,200,000 PLWHIV, with about 2,592,000 currently on ART.
It was also revealed at the budget defence that the actual cost of treatment for a patient is N110,000, but subsidised at N31,243 annually.

The Abdulmumin Jibrin-led Appropriation Committee however expressed determination to assist NACA after a comprehensive reconciliation of the funds expended the previous year has been carried out.

The Appropriation Committee also said it will give serious consideration to an additional N150m requested by the Commodity Market for its 2016 activities.

It makes perfect sense, countries where gays are pushed underground have higher AIDS statistics. If America is wasting it's tax dollars on a country that has refused to make the environment healthy for sexual deviants then they might as well light it up and let it burn.

Nigeria should remove prison terms for Gay people and replace it with rehabilitation centers,as Gay and lesbianism act is just a social habit disorder,scientist have also prove that some male and female have higher opposite sex hormones and some other genetic factors that make them to behave like opposite sex and also prison terms for them is against their fundamental human right

Govt needs to look for where to source that 58bn ASAP cos if that doesn't happen,there would be either a rapid spread of the virus,or mass deaths of people living with HIV. Those of you that like to Bleep anyhow and sleep with anything sleepable(both male and female),are in for it.
