on

According to the Director General of National Agency for Control of Aids (NACA), Dr Gambo Aliyu, engaging in unsafe and unclean sexual activities can significantly heighten the risk of HIV and other STIs transmission.

He said, “The holiday season is a time of joy and celebration, and as we come together with our loved ones, it is paramount that we prioritise our health and well-being.

“As we celebrate this festive season, let us make responsible choices in our intimate lives. By adopting and advocating for responsible sexual practices, we can collectively contribute to a healthier and happier community. “Abstinence, maintaining faithfulness to your partner, and consistently using condoms are among the most effective measures to prevent the transmission of these infections.”

Dr Aliyu restated the agency’s commitment to raising awareness and promoting preventive measures that will safeguard public health.

PUNCH Healthwise reports that NACA is Nigeria’s primary agency responsible for the coordination and control of HIV/AIDS programmes with the mission to lead the national response to HIV/AIDS by providing strategic direction, support, and coordination to all stakeholders involved in HIV/AIDS prevention, treatment, care, and support efforts.
