John Bray, who spoke during a 2016 World AIDS Day programme in Lagos on Monday, said 8.7 million people have received HIV counselling and testing, while 750,000 adults and children living with the HIV/AIDs have received care and support.
“I want to assure you of the U.S. government’s unwavering commitment in supporting partner countries to control their epidemics, and our focus on ensuring every dollar invested has the greatest impact for those in need,” Mr. Bray said.
The theme for this year’s World AIDS Day is ‘Leadership. Commitment. Impact.’
Mr. Bray said since its inception in 2004, the President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) has disbursed more than 3.4 billion dollars to support Nigeria’s HIV/AIDS response.
