Wike Hails U.S For Partnering Rivers Against AIDS by hardtoget: 8:19am On Aug 21, 2019
Rivers State Governor Nyesom Wike has praised the United States for working with the state to fight HIV/AIDS.

Wike spoke yesterday at the Government House in Port Harcourt during a meeting with the U.S. Ambassador to Nigeria, Stuart Symington. The meeting centred on the promotion of the health of Rivers people.

Wike said: “I thank the United States for working with us to reduce the prevalence of HIV/AIDS. I thank the U.S for recognising the contributions of Rivers State in the fight against AIDS.”

The governor assured the U.S that his administration would continue to fund programmes to reduce the prevalence.

“We will continue to work for the reduction of HIV/AIDS. We are glad that we are partners with the U.S. For us, health is key. Education is key. With education, you can talk to people on measures to stop the spread of HIV/AIDS. At present, with the support of the U.S, we are running 115 sites to prevent mother-to-child transmission of HIV/AIDS.”

Symington said his country had a $75 million budget increase for HIV control activities in Nigeria, with about $25 million allocated for the ART surge activities.

He thanked Wike for announcing his intent to eliminate user-fees for PLHIV.

According to Symington, the U.S. President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR), administered by the U.S. Centre for Disease Control (CDC), Department of Defence, and Agency for International Development (USAID) is implementing an Anti-Retroviral Treatment (ART) surge programme in Rivers State to identify and provide treatment to approximately 180,000 PLHIV, who have not previously received such.

He said: “The United States remains committed to supporting Nigeria as it works to reduce and ultimately eliminate the scourge of HIV/AIDS among its people.”

Every states in Nigeria have atleast an HIV patient.

Assuming you wrote RIVERS OF BLOOD due to the daily incessant cult-related killings in that part of the country, we will surely concur!

A friend working in an NGO recently told me Port Harcourt is now the hub of HIV/AIDS in Nigeria. Said it's been difficult to educate most flatinos on the usefulness of a condom. They won't understand, just the way they hardly understand simple things.

Shut up! Is there any state in Nigeria that's cultism free or crime free? Bloggers are now known for reporting any negative news that has to do with the state just because it'd generate traffic and get people like you to type 'Rivers of blood' while happenings in other states are ignored. How are you even different from the person you mentioned?

Two South-south states are among the three states with the highest HIV prevalence rate in Nigeria.

Akwa Ibom tops the prevalence rate chart with about 5.5 per cent of its residents living with the virus. It is followed by Benue which has a prevalence rate of 5.3 per cent while Rivers is third with a prevalence rate of 3.8 per cent.

The details were contained in the Nigerian HIV/AIDs Indicator and Impact Survey (NAIIS) whose result was released last week in Abuja.

The result shows that about one per cent of Nigerians (1.9 million people) are currently living with HIV/AIDs.

This figure, according to the Minister of Health, Isaac Adewole, moves Nigeria from second to the fourth position among countries battling the HIV epidemic.

With an earlier estimate of about 3.2 million people living with HIV, Nigeria was second after South Africa which ranks first with about 7.1 million people living with HIV.

Does this your statistics corroborate with your earlier statement? Like I stated previously, most of you on this forum are known for making daft fallacious statement. According to you, Rivers is the hub of HIV in Nigeria, but your statistics places Akwa Ibom State as the hub of HIV in Nigeria.
