Minister of Gender and Development Nkandu Luo say Zambia has made significant strides in fighting the HIV and AIDS scourge in the nation.

Professor Luo said although 1. 3 million Zambians are living with HIV and AIDS in Zambia, a lot of success has been recorded in the area of retro-vial drug services for those effected with the disease.

The Gender and Development minister said this today during the launch of Viral Load Testing campaign at Lusaka Civic Centre.

Prof. Nkandu said government is also making steady headways in achieving millennium development goal on health services for the people in line with the World Health Organization guidelines.

She noted that the problem of HIV and AIDS in Zambia is not an individual one but that it is a national problem which affects everyone.

And UNAIDS representative Henry Damison said UNAIDS is a strong advocate of HIV and AIDS in many African countries including Zambia.

Mr Damison said by June 30, 2015, Zambia had over 700,000 people on HIV and AIDS treatment.

  1. BA NKANDU LUO LOOKS LIKE A MAN AND EVEN WHEN MRS CHANDA PHIRI SAYS BAD WORDS ON OTHER WOMEN’S HUSBAND, SHE SHOULD LOOK VERY CLOSELY ON THE FACE OF HE WOMAN AND POSE A COMMENT

    • Appearances change as people age. Beauty doesn’t last forever, so it’s the heart which counts at the end of the day. #GodsCreation.

    • Such an ugly woman. There is no reason whatsoever why any man can think of having an erection even when bundled up together in sack for years!

    • @Suntwe wa Suntwe, you are being selective. Men continue to have erections over goats and dogs… leave the women alone!

  2. iwe chi professor, can you please explain to us using peer reviewed papers how HIV causes AIDS. why are you lying to people that HIV is killing T cells kanshi imwe ba chimbwi!!!!! We know for a fact that retroviruses of which you claim HIV is do not kill their host cells. They do not kill their host cells, they infact live with them compatibly. but even if they did, HIV infects 1 out of 1000 T-cells and the reproduction rate of T -cells is at 5 % per day. which means that mathematically, HIV never catches up to kill T-cells so as to cause AIDS (depletion of T cells). Have you iwe chi professor done your own research on these things or are you just repeating what these white beasts told you? professor or master of regurgitation?

    • You could debate with respect for your opponent and with decency. No one has the monopoly of the truth. If you do, express your opinions without insulting those who are ignorant.
