President Lungu urges HIV testing

PRESIDENT Edgar Lungu has called on Zambians, especially men, to know their HIV status and help prevent the further spread of the disease.
He said in Livingstone that men were amongst groups of people with the lowest testing and treatment coverage.
President Lungu said this in a speech read for him by Minister of Health Chitalu Chilufya at Villa Grounds during the commemoration of World AIDS Day held under the theme ‘Run the last mile, leaving no-one Behind’.
President Lungu said each person should know his or her HIV status to forestall the spread of HIV.
