Government asked to do more on 90-90-90 campaign


National Association for People Living with HIV and AIDS in Malawi (Napham) has called on government to allocate more funds to the 90-90-90 campaign if the ambitious targets under the campaign are to be achieved by the year 2020.

The call was made by Napham’s Caretaker for Mulanje district Phaless Sungani when she was responding on why the project is not being implemented.

More funding needed in the 90-90-90 campaign.

In her remarks, Sungani pointed out lack of funds as one of the challenges that the organisation is facing.

She explained that the organisation is as well failing to reach out to many people in the area due to the problem.

Sungani also said the campaign is not making any progress as there is a shortage of resources for carrying out necessary activities.

“We are trying our level best to reach out to as many people as we can but we are falling to because we are facing financial problems, people in Mulanje are supposed to know all the necessary information concerning HIV and AIDS so that they should be walking in the right path,” she explained.

Malawi adopted 90-90-90 campaign in an effort to end cases of HIV and AIDs in the country.

The campaign targets that in the year 2020, 90 percent of all people living with HIV will have known their status, 90 percent of people with HIV and AIDS will be taking ARVs and 90 percent on treatment will have low viral load thereby reducing cases of HIV and AIDS in the country.
