Presidential Advisor on HIV/AIDS Dr. Mokowa Blay Adu-Gyamfi has expressed worry at the rate at which Ghanaians are living recklessly.
She is worried that although the virus continues to linger, Ghanaians have thrown caution to the wind.
Dr. Mokowa Blay Adu-Gyamfi is worried there may be an HIV/AIDS epidemic in Ghana soon.
“The media should be told to educate people all the time that the virus is real. It is still a problem. With Covid-19, now we don’t even hear of HIV/AIDS at all. I’m sure we are going to have a big epidemic very soon because we don’t hear of it.
People are not cautious of it and now, homosexual practices and all that. People need education. Fresh people are coming up so they have to be educated. In that field, I think we are not doing well at all. We haven’t called the media into play and that has to be corrected,” she posited.
The HIV/AIDS virus continues to persist in Ghana although the West African country has worked hard to contain the virus.
