News - GET SCREENED TO AVOID MTCT – DIRECTOR (SACA)

Pregnant women in Ogun State have been reminded of the need to know their HIV status and as well encourage others in their communities to go for screening in order to avoid Mother to Child Transmission (MTCT).

Director, Ogun State Agency for the Control of AIDs (Ogun SACA), Dr. Kehinde Fatungase gave the admonition in Abeokuta during a sensitization programme on the Prevention of Mother to Child Transmission (PMTCT) organised by the State Ministry of Women Affairs and Social Development to commemorate 2015 International Women’s Day Celebration.

While addressing the participants, Dr. Fatungase disclosed that being HIV positive is not a death sentence but an opportunity for such people to make better choices and embrace health habits that would prevent transmission of the deadly disease to their unborn children.

He urged women to educate everyone in their communities, most especially the pregnant women on the need to know their status, saying that it would reduce the spread of the disease to its barest minimum if not completely eradicated in the society.

Earlier in her opening remarks, Director Women Empowerment in the Ministry of Women Affairs and Social Development. Mrs. Soladayo Babalola urged the participants to extend the knowledge acquired to others in their communities adding that the programme was meant to sensitize everyone on the need to tackle the deadly disease that has taken many lives.

While delivering lecture on Prevention of Mother to Child Transmission (PMTCT), Mrs. Olufunke Adu said early detection promotes communication between couples and testing of both partners and if any of the party tested positive, Government would provide free access to medical care.
