Nigeria Reports Progress in Fighting HIV/AIDS

November 3, 2010

Speaking Friday at an awareness event in Kogi state, the director-general of the National Agency for the Control of AIDS praised Nigeria's progress against HIV. "Nigeria is beginning to win the battle," said John Idoko. "At first, we had prevalence that was far above 6 percent, but now we have brought it down to 4.6 percent" as of 2008, he said, adding that preliminary reports suggest the figure has been further reduced since then.
