National AIDS control council intensifies condoms distribution

The National AIDS control council has intensified the distribution of condoms in Turkana county to combat the spread of HIV during the Corona virus pandemic.

Regional coordinator Bernard Mwaura said the council is keen to ensure that all lodgings and strategic places are supplied with condoms.

“We have been distributing condoms to lodgings and villages to ensure that people can access condoms even during curfews,” said Mwaura.

Lodwar resident Hussein Gitonga commended the council for its initiative saying some members of the Public fear purchasing condoms during the day.

“With the support from national AIDS control, our people are now able to access condoms. This will go along way in boosting the fight against HIV/ AIDS,” said Gitonga.

On Monday Mwaura distributed condoms to lodgings in Lodwar, Kambi Mawe and Makuti villages.

Statistics indicate that the pandemic has increased from 3.2 percent to 6 percent over the last four years.

Stakeholders have renewed their efforts to fight the scourge.
