#HIV: FG, States should ensure free health services for adolescents with HIV - PATA

#HIV: FG, States should ensure free health services for adolescents with HIV - PATA

At a stakeholders’ forum on ‘Advancing the Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights of Adolescents Living with
HIV, ALHIV in Nigeria supported by Ford Foundation Office for West Africa, the Programme Manager of PATA, Mr. Francis Umoh said there is a need to ensure free comprehensive HIV treatment for adolescent living with HIV in all government owned facilities across Nigeria.

He said:

“State Agencies for the Control of AIDS, SACA together with other stakeholders within government, international and Community Organisations should establish and support platforms for ALHIV for sharing of experiences, psychosocial support and empowering them in reproductive health and treatment adherence. “Government and all stakeholders should support the implementation of sexuality education that addresses the specific needs of adolescents living with HIV and the need to be represented at relevant state and national technical working groups to ensure integration of issues affecting adolescents and young people.

“The age of consent for HIV counselling and testing and for starting HIV treatment should be reduced to 14 instead of the current 18 years. This will ensure more young people know their HIV status on time and commence treatment promptly,” he added.
