Our HIV policy

Our HIV/AID Policy

HIV continues to be a major global public health issue in sub-Sahara Africa, which has suffered the burden of the disease more than any other region of the world. Sixty nine per cent of all people living with HIV are from this region. There is therefore an epidemic of HIV/AID on the African continent — Please find uploaded onto the website "Epidemics of HIV/AID on the African continent. The disease affects people of all ages — unborn baby, children, and adults and impacts on all spheres of human endeavour.

There is urgent need for prevention of the disease in every society — developed and developing world; this need can only be fulfilled concomitantly with education of the general population on the subject. Our policy is therefore enumerated as following:

  • We highlight the devastating impacts of HIV / AID in sub-Sahara Africa on human health, including mother and baby, economy and governance.
  • We educate people on the following — the cause of the disease, mode of transmission, preventive measures both in general population and healthcare workers and living with someone with the
  • Particular attention is paid to HIV in pregnancy
  • We educate people on the need to volunteer for screening for the disease and also to disease from discriminating against patients.
  • We identify areas where care for HIV patients or preventive measures are deficient and recommend to federal and local Governments of different areas within a country measures to be taken to breach the gap. Examples of such work are as following:
    • We are presently raising fund to run blood transfusion service in the rural areas of Rivers state of Nigeria. Blood transfusion in rural areas of the state now is done on the spot by taking blood from relatives of a patient and transfusing it without doing required test for infection on the blood.
    • We are also raising fund to buy machine that can calculate viral load in HIV At the moment, in the whole of Rivers State where oil is produced in Nigeria, there is no such machine. Therefore management of pregnant women and generally people with the disease will be substandard.
