FREEPRESS – Findings have shown that residents of Abuja have the highest risk of contacting HIV/AIDS in Nigeria, a health expert has revealed.
Walter Ugwocha, the Executive Secretary, Civil Society for HIV and AIDS in Nigeria, CISHAN made this known in an interview with PREMIUM TIMES.
He said the Federal Capital Territory has 7.5 percent HIV/AIDS prevalence, with Mpape, a satellite town in the territory, having more than 25 percent prevalence.
On the treatment of the disease, he said more people are now on treatment than the newly infected ones.
CISHAN is the umbrella network for all non profits working on HIV/AIDS in Nigeria.
A tour of Abuja nightlife zones by PREMIUM TIMES shows just how lucrative commercial sex can be in the nation’s capital, and how crooked pimps make a fortune trafficking mostly poor girls from far-flung states to sell sex in the city.
