UNAIDS Head Says Nigeria Has Ability to Stop Mother-to-Child HIV/AIDS Transmission
April 27, 2012
In Abuja on Thursday, UNAIDS Executive Director Michel Sidibe said he believes Nigeria can end mother-to-child HIV transmission by 2015. "I want you to continue to advocate for Nigeria and Africa and through the governors' wives to prevent HIV in the states, to increase the budget to make sure that we have a strong primary health care service for pregnant women to have access to these services," said Sidibe, who led a UNAIDS delegation to meet with Nigeria's first lady, Patience Jonathan.
