Govt's efforts in curbing HIV prevalence commended

10 September 2013, 23:19 Kelvin Wanjohi

Nairobi - Health Cabinet Secretary, James Macharia, has said that the government's response towards the HIV/AIDS pandemic since it was discovered 30 years ago is laudable, and tremendous efforts have been made towards the prevention and control of the disease.

Speaking during the launch of the preliminary report of the Kenya Aids Survey in Nairobi, Macharia said that the disease has had economic impacts to the country and too many other developing countries particularly those in sub-Saharan Africa.

He said that the country has been conducting HIV surveillance through various approaches raging from sentinel surveillance sites to national wide surveys which has provided the country with baseline information on the trend of HIV and also assisted in evaluating the success on the efforts.

The Cabinet Secretary said that the survey was conducted to provide information to the government of Kenya and other stakeholders on the current status of the HIV epidemic.

“I have just enumerated a few of the many achievements in key areas in the fight against HIV. It is worth noting that the war against HIV is still far from being won,” He noted.

He at the same time urged all leaders and partners to work together in educating the public on prevention and control of the disease.

He also urged the media and communication agencies to use their comparative advantage of reaching out to the masses to contribute in a big way in providing accurate knowledge and disseminating relevant information to the public regarding the same.
