The Kano State Government has called for collaboration with civil society groups toward ending HIV/AIDS 2030 to actualise the United Nations goal of ending the epidemic.
Dr Sabitu Shua’ibu Shanono, the Director-General of Kano State Agency for the Control of AIDS (KSACA), made plea at a one-day townhall meeting with CSOs/CBOs on their role in curbing HIV/AIDS as part of World AIDS Day commemoration held at Tahir Guest palace.
He said “HIV/AIDS requires attention just like COVID-19. It is important to expand our thinking with all efforts to achieve the desired goals.
“There is a need to know our responsibility and to share it among us so that we solidly fight HIV/AIDS.”
Aminu Bello Sani, Public Relations Officer, KSACA, urged the participants to utilise the knowledge gained from the interaction to fight epidemic.
According to the National Agency for the Control of Aids, Kano has an HIV/AIDS prevalence rate of 0.5 per cent.
