President Muhammadu Buhari, yesterday, launched the HIV/AIDS trust fund of Nigeria (HTFN).

The trust fund is championed by the National Agency for the Control of AIDS (NACA) and is driven by the Nigeria Business Coalition Against AIDS (NiBUCAA).

Speaking while launching the fund, Buhari said ending HIV/AIDS is a family health right and the government will continue to ensure the spread of the disease is curbed.

“Ending AIDS as a public health threat in Nigeria will require increased domestic funding. We have continued to make good our commitment of placing more people living with HIV on treatment annually using national resources,” he said.

“However, strong domestic resource mobilisation with an enduring partnership and shared responsibility is required to sustain the response to HIV and other emerging public health emergencies.”
