  News Detail
     
  The partnership program between Nigeria and the United States on HIV/AIDS control has led to the establishment of a liaison office by the US and the donation of equipments to personnel of the Nigerian Armed Forces for their use.

Dr. Rowland Oritsejafor, Minister of State for Defence, while commissioning the facility in Abuja on 26 January said with the formal take-off of the initiative, the Nigerian military would now use modern technology to coordinate its HIV/AIDS control programme. The Minister stated that the partnership was historic as it signals the new focus of the world's military "to use its resources for each other and not to focus guns and other weapons on each other."

Among the items commissioned alongside treatment materials are official and utility vehicles, a 50 KVA generator, communications equipment and other gadgets.

Though the partnership programme is primarily for the use of the military personnel, civilians living within the barracks are to make use of the facilities for their treatment and test.

The partnership programmes are already available at the Mogadishu Barracks, Abuja, Army Referral Hospital, Kaduna, the Nigerian Air Force Hospital, Ikeja and the Naval Hospital, Ojo, Lagos State.
