Kaduna — The Kaduna State Agency for the Control of HIV/AIDS (KADSACA) in collaboration with the United Nations International Children Education Fund (UNICEF) has called on the media to help in the fight against HIV/AIDS in the country.

Speaking at a two day workshop organized by Kaduna State Media Cooperation (KSMC) in collaboration with UNICEF and KADSACA, the Executive Secretary of KADSACA, Mr. Patrick Katuka, said the media has a huge role to play in the fight against the virus. "We have seen the importance of the media in the fight against HIV /AIDs which is what led to this workshop. It is one opportunity we have to share knowledge and some of the things we have done so that we will be able to draw a work plan on the way forward and how to disseminate information to the people of Kaduna State. We all have a responsibility as individuals and groups to render service and to invest in the service to humanity", he said.
