REVEALED!!! 2.9M Nigerians Living With AIDS Are In Hiding & Not Receiving Treatments- Experts

Do you believe 3.4million Nigerians were diagnosed only last year of HIV/AIDS? I find this difficult to believe. But that’s what Vanguard is saying courtesy of experts. They also said only 500,000 people are currently receiving treatments while the rest of the 2.9million people (mostly men) are in hiding and spreading the disease. My people please always use a CD. Insist on it, don’t let any man brainwash you to do it flesh to flesh. Please CD’s are paramount, they are COMPULSORY. And be careful of other objects such as needles, blades, etc. Also insist during blood transfusions that the blood given to you is a clean one. Oral sex is also bad because you can get it from the fluid of the man or the VJ of a woman. So if you like giving the head, you must be sure, she is CLEAN. This is my own plea o, please let’s stay clean and stay ALIVE.
And if you already have it, please STOP spreading it, fear God. Do you want to be punished on earth and still get to heaven and receive more punishments? Why don’t you just turn to God for healing. Why don’t you live your normal life, because with drugs you can live and not die. So why don’t you just do that instead. Are you not even scared of facing God on judgement day to tell him that YES you had it and had to spread it as well, won't you be scared? Abeg o, God will heal you, please have a change of mind. Women don’t forget, protect yourselves. Continue....

According to Vanguard, An estimated 2.9 million people living with HIV/AIDS out of 3.4 million Nigerians diagnosed last year are not receiving treatment needed to suppress the infection. Those affected, most of who are currently living in hiding, are not only at risk of death from HIV related illnesses, but are also infecting new people, causing a surge of the disease.
Nigerian HIV experts revealed this at a scientific symposium to mark this year’s World AIDS Day, organised by the Nigerian Institute of Medical Research, NIMR, in collaboration with Nigeria Medical Association, NMA, Lagos branch.
In her submission, representative of the Population Council Abuja, Dr. Sylvia Adebajo noted that only 500,000 people are currently on treatment, while the 2.9 million largely men, serve as reservoir for the spread of HIV.

 “Men do not go to hospital as much as women so they are the most difficult to reach. Those at higher risks include; women, homosexuals, men who engage with drugs and those who have sex with female sex workers.”
Adebajo said  the attitude of testing people and letting them go without follow up needs to be stopped, and more people, particularly men needs to be reached with treatment.
Director-General of NIMR, Prof Innocent Ujah regretted that despite that effective available for the diagnosis and clinical management, the AIDS epidemic still claims an estimated two million lives each year, of which about 270, 000 are children.
“The multi – year theme since 2012 has been “getting to zero with the three main sub-themes of zero new infections, zero deaths from AIDs – related illnesses and zero discrimination.
Ujah who lauded the UNAIDS 90 – 90 -90 initiative said it was designed to have 90 percent of all people diagnosed with HIV infection receive sustained ARV therapy and 90- percent of all people receiving ARV will have viral suppression.
“With 90 percent of those on treatment having viral suppression, there will be a drastic break of transmission of new infection and end the HIV/AIDS pandemic by 2030.”
