National Agency for Control of Aids to sample 88,000 households in latest HIV survey

The National Agency for Control of Aids – NACA has said that it would sample 88,000 households in the country, in its latest Nigeria Aids Indicator and Impact Survey – NAIIS.

Director-General, NACA, Dr Sani Aliyu, who disclosed this when the agency paid an advocacy visit to the Emir of Minna, said the survey would have people tested for HIV and hepatitis.

Aliyu, represented by Director, Community Prevention and Care Support Services in the agency, Dr Alex Ogundipe, said that the sample size of 88,000 was the biggest any country had ever used.

The DG said that the survey, which would commence in two weeks’ time, would ensure that the agency spends far less on curtailing HIV and hepatitis.
