Prince Harry Sentebale commemorating World AIDS Day

"But, we must understand that the HIV response is a public responsibility for everyone".

Around 150,000 people in the country are infected with HIV while out of the infected number only 25,000 are registered with the treatment centres, minister for health said on Thursday.

He said that the Day, which was commemorated annually on December 1, gave opportunity for people worldwide to unite in the fight against HIV and to show support for people living with the virus.

Knowing your HIV status has many advantages. Advances in HIV prevention, treatment, and care services have enabled us to significantly reduce the rate of HIV infections and improve the health of those living with HIV. "When women and girls are empowered to make informed choices about their bodies and lives, when their human rights are upheld and when they are meaningfully involved in coming up with solutions, we will be able to put an end to HIV/AIDS once and for all".

To remain healthy and to prevent transmission, the virus needs to be suppressed to undetectable or very low levels through sustained antiretroviral therapy. "You can get treated and live a normal life".

The TCE programme is based on community mobilization, HIV testing, tuberculosis screening, referrals to treatment, and support for HIV treatment adherence.

Osinbajo, who was represented by the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Mr Boss Mustapha, promised that more funds would be committed to the treatment of HIV and AIDS.

"As the first MP to disclose their HIV status in the House, Lloyd has taken a big step and we absolutely applaud him".

Mr Green said: "When Prince Harry publicly speaks about taking an HIV test, or last week helped us launch HIV testing week, or when he talks publicly about HIV being nothing to be feared, that does a huge amount to tackle the stigma associated with HIV".

"There is also the discrimination around how sexual partners might view you and do view you and how employees view you". This milestone was achieved in an HIV testing campaign being done by ADPP Mozambique through HOPE Maputo project.

Telling MPs the United Kingdom is "at a juncture in the fight against HIV and AIDS", he attacked the government's "reluctance" to make HIV prevention drug PrEP available on the NHS as "disgraceful".

"But there are still far too many new infections-1.8 million in 2017 alone".
