The Network of People Living with HIV/AIDS in Nigeria (NEPWHAN), on Monday, urged its members to always stay safe and get vaccinated.
The Organisation’s National Coordinator, Ibrahim Abdulkadir, said this in Abuja.
According to him, staying safe and getting COVID-19 vaccination was key to a healthy and longer life for his colleagues.
He urged people living with HIV to comply with the safety protocol and continue to take their antiretroviral drugs (ARV), no matter their viral load.
Abdulkadir expressed optimism that with strict compliance with safety protocol and vaccination, people living with HIV would come out stronger and alive and overcome the COVID-19 pandemic.
“I urge my people to always stay safe and more importantly get vaccinated,” he said.
