The National Agency for the Control of AIDS (NACA) reaffirms its commitment to promoting a healthy and responsible celebration of love, particularly amidst the ongoing global health challenges.
Dr. Gambo Aliyu, the Director General of NACA, emphasizes the importance of prioritizing safety and well-being while expressing affection. NACA aims to encourage individuals to adopt a comprehensive approach to love, emphasizing open communication, mutual respect, and responsible choices.
Dr. Aliyu urges the public to incorporate protection into intimate moments and highlights the significance of regular HIV testing and discussions about sexual health with partners. By embracing responsible practices, love can enrich lives without compromising health. NACA is dedicated to providing resources, information, and support to empower individuals in making informed choices.
These measures not only enhance personal health but also contribute to the broader goal of building safer and healthier communities. In line with its mission, NACA will conduct comprehensive awareness campaigns this Valentine’s Day, educating the public about the importance of both abstinence and safe sex practices.
The agency aims to create an environment where love is celebrated responsibly, fostering a community that values support and health consciousness.
