  • 1.9m people living with HIV/AIDS in Nigeria, survey says

Previous estimates had indicated a national HIV prevalence of 2.8%.

President Muhammadu Buhari has asked the private sector to provide funds for HIV/AIDS-related activities.

He said this would guide the scale up of treatment and prevention services across all age groups.

Tvc's Kemi Balogun reports that Nigeria is the most populous country in Africa with an estimated population of 192 million.

"Now that we have the data, I urge us all to work together to ensure that we deliver ahead of 2030". "Let us work collectively and push for the last mile", Buhari said.

The South-South Zone recorded the highest HIV prevalence rate, according to the 2018 Nigeria HIV and AIDS Indicator and Impact Survey (NAIIS) has revealed. The survey provides a clearer understanding of Nigeria's HIV epidemic and shines a light on progress and the remaining gaps and challenges.

The United states supported the survey with 70 million dollars.

"I am delighted that these more accurate figures indicate that fewer Nigerians are affected by HIV".

"We will ensure that we focus our efforts on ensuring those infected with HIV achieve viral suppression, minimising the risk of HIV transmission and moving Nigeria closer to controlling the HIV epidemic". Significant efforts have been made in recent years to stop new HIV infections among children.

"As part of my contribution to the campaign, I am pleased to inform you that recently, I launched the Free to Shine Campaign here at Abuja before the presence of relevant stakeholders including representatives of MDAs, wives of Governors, members of the Diplomatic Corp as well as people living with HIV/AIDS".

"However, we can not celebrate yet as we are more committed to ensuring that more people are placed on treatment". It will permit the adoption of a population-location approach to deliver services to the people and areas where they are most needed.

"For the south-south, (it) is Akwa-Ibom that has the highest prevalence, and, for the North Central, it is still Benue State".

Among the 15-49 age bracket, 1.4 per cent (1.9 per cent among females and 0.9 per cent among males) are living with HIV, said Aliyu.

In his remarks, Onyeama said the cooperation agreement was a welcome development since it will enable government to have direct relationship with UNAIDS.

"However, it is time for us to leverage on the result and ensure that no baby is born with HIV in Nigeria", he added.

An estimated 1.9 million Nigerians are now living with HIV with about one million persons on treatment.

"This result is good news as it indicates a lower burden which will indicate new people on treatment".

He said the survey conducted by the organisation shows that Nigeria has less people living with the disease.

"To halt the epidemic, we need to act now", said Sani Aliyu, Director-General of the National Agency for the Control of AIDS.

Modern anti-retroviral therapy has made it possible for HIV positive persons to live as long as their HIV negative counterparts.

The NAIIS was led by the Government of Nigeria through the Federal Ministry of Health and the National Agency for the Control of AIDS.

The survey, which is the largest in the world reached around 220,000 people in about 100,000 households and was conducted between July and December 2018.
