Speaking during a World Aids Day event at Kwadaso in Kumasi, the Technical Coordinator for the Ghana AIDS Commission, Olivia Graham, made this stunning revelation.

According to her, due to this fact, they are looking to work with churches to increase awareness, voluntary testing and antiretroviral use.

“Indeed, Christians are the majority population in the country and statistics show that 80% of persons living with HIV in Ghana go to church, therefore, the AIDS Commission seeks to strengthen its partnership with the church and encourage the church to use its pulpit to mobilize its members to test for HIV and support those who test positive to access and attend to antiretroviral treatments.” Graham said.
