​HIV, AMAC assures patients of quality healthcare

The Abuja Municipal Area Council (AMAC) on Friday says it is committed to providing quality healthcare to HIV/AIDs patients.

Dr Modupe Adeyinka, Head of Health Department, AMAC, gave the assurance at the inauguration of the renovated HIV Counselling and Testing Van, by the Institute of Human Virology Nigeria (IHVN) on Friday in Abuja.

NAN reports that the project funded by the IHVN was aimed at boosting HIV services in FCT.

Adeyinka commended the efforts of the organisation for making AMAC a priority area in the implementation of its projects.

According to him, the institute has done a lot of renovations and maintenance of many health facilities outside capacity building and other logistic supports.

“AMAC is one of the six area councils in the FCT and one of the councils benefitting from IHVN.

“It peculiarity is hinged on certain factors which included its high population growth, among others.

“With your support we will continue to maintain and improve the quality of HIV care in our facilities and communities,’’ she said.

Dr Oche Yusuf, Associate Director, IHVN, explained that the HCT mobile van would aid officers to access people in areas that are not easily accessible.

Yusuf further noted that the Hilux van would further assist them to move around, mentor staff and further build their capacity.

“The mobile van will help us get to these patients that cannot get to the facilities, get their samples so that they can have their viral loads taken and tested in the lab.

“We will channel them to the lab where it will be further analysed among others,’’

Yusuf said.
