Bringing HIV/AIDS awareness to Abuja for the first time really paid off

We had our first WASH/HIV/AIDS Intervention awareness at Aleyita in Abuja, FCT  and the main problem of Aleyita is poor health which leads to high rate of preventable diseases and high risk of opportunistic diseases among children infected and affected by HIV, including People Living With HIV/AIDS (PLWH).

One advantage of this training was the urge in participants to have their status known. They all clamored for an HIV Testing and Counseling outreach. H&DI embarked on a 3-day free tea HIV/AIDS testing and counseling outreach in Aleyita community in Abuja, FCT from 3rd to 5thDecember, 2018. With the aim of reaching out to at least 1000 households with HCT in the community and ensuring they know their status to guide their living.

The H&DI team comprising of medical personnel, counselors, testers and care givers were mobilized to site on the 3rd and worked through the 5th of December 2018 to meet our stated objectives.
