Governor sets aside KES 55M to fight against HIV/AIDs

18 November 2014, 11:41 Robert Chepkwony

Nakuru - The Nakuru County Government has set aside KES 55 million towards the fight against the dreaded HIV/AIDs pandemic across its wards, Governor Kinuthia Mbugua has said.

“Each ward will receive KES 1 million to spearhead the war on the deadly virus. My government is keen to curb and prevent the spread of the virus in the County,” said Mbugua when he spoke in Naivasha.

He indicated that statistics from the County health department shows that the prevalence of the disease has gone down in recent years, attributing the reduction to the massive awareness campaigns being carried out by the government and the private sector.

He however called for more concerted efforts in the fight against HIV/AIDs, which he said still poses a big threat to development, adding that appropriate measures to oversee the fight against HIV have been put in place.

The County boss also said the government has initiated policies to fight other diseases like diabetes and high blood pressure.

He further asked residents to go for regular HIV testing and adopt preventive measures, observing that HIV/AIDs has slowed down economic development.
