500 Epe Residents Tested For HIV/AIDS
Date Posted: 16/Sep/2020
The Lagos State Aids Control Agency on Tuesday said it conducted HIV/AIDS test for 500 residents in the Epe Local Government Area of Lagos. A statement said the outreach was in collaboration with the Oloja of Epeland, Oba Kamorudeen Animashaun, Arolugbade II, on the premises of the Epe council secretariat.
The Chief Executive Officer of the agency, Dr Monsurat Adekele, said the programme was aimed at achieving global epidemic control of HIV/AIDS by the end of 2020. According to her, Epe is a priority area because it is among the five LGAs that require urgent HIV interventions.
Adeleke reiterated that the outreach afforded individuals “the opportunity to know their status early, get advised on appropriate steps to prevent transmission to other people, as well as actions to be taken to stop the progression to AIDS through necessary lifestyle modifications and counselling.”
Oba Animashaun was said to have urged residents to take advantage of the campaign to know their status.
