National Day of Testing.....
The National Day of testing is held under the theme “Don’t take chances---take the test..
Its an exercise hosted by the Health Ministry and the National AIDS Programme Secretariat (NAPS) targets some 2,500 persons.
Some 46 fixed sites, in addition to 53 temporary ones, have been set up at strategic locations across the country. The will begin at 7. 30 am and is expected to end at 4.00pm.
Participants will first be counselled both individually and in groups, where required, before being administered the test. In addition, there will be a group of floating counsellors to pitch in if the situation gets overwhelming.
Those tested positive, will be referred to a treatment site for more detailed counselling; and if their condition is serious, they will be given medication.
Dont take chances, get tested, know your status ASAP...
