Our SKM manager shares his experience on the #WorldAIDSDay2017 activity carried out in Ekiti State, Nigeria
We mobilized the National Youth Service Corps member Peer Education Trainers #CPETs across LGAs for a roadwalk to celebrate #WorldAIDSDay2017 #MyRighttoHealth @Ado LGA, @Ikere LGA, @Ekiti SW and @Ekiti East LGA there was massive turnout of Corps members. CPETs collaborated with medical CDS, Band/Culture and Tourism CDS, Road Safety CDS to conduct these rallies
However, we had access to #Condoms only in Ado. HCT was conducted in only Ado! We had to purchase Test kits! Now tell me, how realistic is the theme: #myrighttohealth when there is a ‘famine’ of commodities for testing and other services in our healthcare facilities? I thought our current minister of health, Prof Adewole is a reference figure in HIV response in Nigeria.
This is food for thought for us as local stakeholders in the #HIV response……
