In Their Remarks, Peter Sands of the Global Fund and David Walton of the President’s Malaria Initiative commended the Nigerian Government for its efforts towards combating Malaria, HIV AIDS and Tuberculosis and urged all stakeholders to sustain the momentum, especially in the bid to achieve the 2030 target of eradicating HIV AIDS in Nigeria.
