As part of efforts to stem HIV/AIDS in Nigeria, MTN Foundation last week commissioned a Youth Friendly Centre at the Olabisi Onabanjo University, Ago-Iwoye.
The centre according to MTN, will increase access to HIV counselling and testing within the university community which will go a long way in preventing the spread of the disease.
Director, MTN Nigeria Foundation, Mr. Dennis Okoro, said that the centre will make it possible for youths and adults to check their HIV status and be counseled in a friendly and conducive environment,” said
Director General, National Agency for the Control of AIDS, Dr. John Idoko, who was present at the commissioning, applauded the Foundation for its kind gesture. “It is very thoughtful of MTN Foundation to provide such a centre as this to help reduce the spread of HIV/AIDS. With the help of care educators, the prevalence of the disease can be reduced and managed properly.”
