The Director General of Kano State Agency for the Control of AIDS, Dr Sabitu Shanono says only 35 % of People Living with HIV/AIDS in Kano are on medication.
He revealed this when he paid an advocacy visit to Emir of Karaye, Alhaji Ibrahim Abubakar II at his palace.
Dr Shanono said the SACA will launch an HIV/AIDS awareness campaign at the newly created Karaye Emirate next month.
The director general said the campaign will complement the compulsory HIV test for pregnant women attending ante-natal clinics.
He therefore solicited the support of the Karaye Emirate in the fight against HIV/AIDS.
In his remarks, Emir Abubakar II affirmed his readiness to provide royal support to ensure the fight against the disease records a huge success.
He also called on his subjects to attend the Heart to Heart centers in public hospitals to verify their HIV status.
