Cote d'Ivoire Health Minister Says HIV Decreasing Among Blood Donors

July 26, 2001

The rate of HIV infection among blood donors in Cote d'Ivoire has declined from 8 percent to 0.3 percent, according to the National Blood Transfusion Centre (CNTS) in Abidjan. Health Minister Raymond N'dori Abouo announced the findings this week at a training workshop for blood transfusion managers in Africa. "Cote d'Ivoire, wishing to share its experience with other African countries in order to fight HIV/AIDS more effectively, puts emphasis on inter-country training through its transfusion center," the minister explained. Initiated by the World Health Organization, the training session brings together 24 leaders of blood transfusion centers from 12 African countries.
