In its attempt to curtail the spread of HIV/AIDS in the country, the federal government, under the President’s Comprehensive Response Plan (PCRP), plans to avail 80 million Nigerians aged 15 and older with knowledge of their HIV status.

President Goodluck Jonathan made this known Tuesday at the AIDS Watch Africa Champions breakfast meeting held at the International Conference Centre, Abuja.

After the breakfast, the president also had a closed door meeting with his Kenyan counterpart, Uhuru Kenyatta, after which they signed a bilateral agreement spanning areas of health, terrorism and foreign relations.
