Welcome development. HIV is just a disease or sickness. It is AIDS that ought to be dreaded. But unfortunately, our people out of ignorance neglect to test for HIV until it has progressed to a point called AIDS where the T4 cell count may no longer be helped. Therefore, early detection is the key. Also, there is need for sensitization. HIV/AIDS is still highly stigmatized in the country. It is just one of those sicknesses and contagion by means other than sexual intercourse is high.
