NACA Adopts Stringent Measures To Check AIDS In Nigeria
The National Agency for the Control of AIDS (NACA) has pledged the readiness of the Federal Government to adopt stringent measures in checking the spread of the disease in the country.
The Director General of the agency, Prof John Idoko, gave the assurance when he flagged of a medical outreach in Edor and Ikom Town in Ikom local government area of Cross River State.
He said the attention accorded to other prevalent deadly diseases in recent times had resulted in the spread of AIDS which hitherto was under control in the country.
Idoko, who was represented by Dr. Miriam Ezekwe, lauded stakeholders for their commitment towards the target and called for synergy amongst government for coordinated efforts.
The Ikom local government area Chairman, Pastor Ayimba Ayimba, thanked the Federal Government for the choice of Ikom for the programme and assured of maximum cooperation for the expansion of the event around the entire local government area which is a border town.
