Zubairu Galadima-Soba, Kaduna State Director of the National Orientation Agency, has urged the media to help in shaping the attitude of Nigerians towards sustaining efforts to bring the scourge of HIV/AIDS to barest level in the country.
The director made the appeal on Thursday in Zaria, Kaduna State at a meeting of media chief executives in the state on Preventing Mother to Child Transmission of HIV, and among Adolescents and Young Persons.
The meeting was organised by NOA with support from UNICEF.
“I appeal to the media to sustain current efforts and open new vista to ensure that the transmission of HIV/AIDS is brought to tolerable levels or even wiped out.
“NOA believes that shaping the attitude of Nigerians is important in achieving the set goals of addressing HIV/AIDS in the country,’’ he said.
