The 2018 Love Safely Concert with Taye Currency and Alhaji Rashidi Ayinde Adekunle Merenge was organized by Oyo State Agency for the Control of AIDS (OYSACA) to raise awareness about HIV and AIDS and urge people to take HIV test putting into perspective the UNAIDS 90:90:90 goal.
Oje community was picked for the event after much deliberation with stakeholders and due considerations to all vulnerability factors.
Reports from OYSACA revealed that apart from tailored information and messages on HIV and AIDS which were well delivered by the two guest artists and other key partners in the state, one thousand five hundred and eighty-two people who received their test results right on the spot were counseled and tested for HIV. Those who needed further care were referred to health facilities where needed services could be provided.
The Society for Family Health supported the programme by providing trained HTS officers who joined forces with OYSACA HTS team to provide HIV Testing Services to those who came to witness the event. See below for some of photographs from the event.
