Chairman, Group MD advises at FMN World AIDS Day
FMN ADVISES INDIVIDUALS TO KNOW THEIR STATUS AS IT MARKS WORLD AIDS DAY

Over the past 15 years there has been remarkable progress in the fight against HIV/AIDS and this has inspired a global push to eradicate the virus by 2030.

Without a cure yet, such a goal can only be achieved by creating awareness and giving education on prevention of HIV/AIDS.

To commemorate World AIDS Day 2017, the management of Flour Mills of Nigeria Plc organized a series of activities from testing to counseling designed to sensitize and encourage their staff to engage in the discussions on HIV/AIDS.

It is time to unite and take action against this global disaster.

Of the 35 million people currently living with the virus all over the world, 3.2 million are Nigerians and while we strive to prevent new cases, we must ensure that there is adequate care; medical, social and otherwise.

The Group Managing Director of FMN reiterated the company’s commitment to this cause in the speech he gave during the event.

“We will continue to abide by our non-discriminatory policy on having HIV positive people in our employment and continue to provide the right support to our colleagues who are living with the disease.”

World AIDS Day is a global event held on the 1st of December each year to unite people around the world in the fight against HIV and to support people living with the virus. “Everybody counts. Right to health” was the theme for this year’s event.
