Tanzania has launched a campaign for HIV Testing countrywide in Dodoma-June 2018
The Prime Minister H.E. Kassim Majaliwa Majaliwa in Dodoma recently while officiating at a nationwide HIV testing campaign “Furaha yangu” literally meaning “My pleasure” meant to encourage all Tanzanians, especially men and youth to go for testing and start early treatment if found HIV positive. The Premier, emphasizing for people to participate in the campaign said that the Government targets to attain the global set goal of 90-90-90 by 2020. million people. He further directed all Regional and district Commissioners to work with HIVAIDS stakeholders to sensitize people at the respective regions including at the workplaces, to take HIV tests and start early treatment. He categorically insisted for men to participate in the campaign as their turn out to such initiatives is normally very low compared to their female counterparts. It is also noted that men have poor health seeking behaviour which limits them for accessing proper information and HIV prevention services.
