Are you making the right decision?
Let me ask you a simple question: Have you bothered to think about HIV situation in Nigeria?
While you are thinking about it, let me ask you another one.
How many people do you think are living with HIV/AIDS in Nigeria?
Let’s say 2 million people?
What!!! It is too much please. It should be less than that biko!
If that was your reaction, let me shock you small.
According to National Agency for Control of AIDS (NACA) 2015 report on HIV, MORE THAN 3.3 MILLION Nigerians living with HIV.
Yes! You heard me right, more than 3.3 million people and this number might be lower than the actual figure.
But that will be topic for another day.
Let me ask you another question?
Do you know your HIV status? If yes, congratulation.
But if it’s No, maybe it’s time to visit the nearest clinic and get tested.
I just want to share 2015 HIV data for Nigeria with you.
