A non-governmental organization (NGO), Healthcare Foundation, has distributed 28, 000 condoms in six states in the country as part of the 2017 World Aids Day.

According to the Senior Nursing Officer of the NGO, Christy Awunor who revealed this in Abuja on Friday, it was part of efforts to increase awareness on the use of condoms and its role in preventing spread of HIV/AIDS.

“We are providing free HIV/AIDS test and treatment, counselling and advocacy as well as distributing 28,000 condoms in all communities and states where we operate,” she said.

“Our condom distribution, demonstration and education are part of our preventive measures for HIV/AIDS; we have dispensers at strategic places in FCT and we fill them up with condoms.

“We want to ensure that condoms are always available and accessible for as many people that want it so as to prevent them from contracting the virus.”

The World Aids Day holds every December 1 and is meant to raise money, increase awareness, fight prejudice and improve education on the scourge.

This year’s theme is: “Increasing Impact Through Transparency, Accountability and Partnerships.”
