The United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA), says it has so far distributed over 53,000 condoms through its Wise-up Cross River State campaign at Calabar Christmas Village. Mr. Olamide Onifade, Head, Monitoring and Evaluation Unit, UNFPA, Wise-up Cross River State, disclosed this in a release he issued and made available to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Calabar on Sunday.

NAN reports that the campaign has been on since December 1, when the one-month annual commercial fiesta began at the Christmas village.

It is in line with the target of ending HIV/AIDS around the world by 2030, using the 90:90:90 strategy, developed by the UNAIDS.

He said: “As at Wednesday, December 22, 2016, a total of 3,533 people have accessed the Wise-up zone with a total of 2030 HIV counselling and testing carried out.

“Also, over 53,000 units of both male and female condoms have been given out, while 7,077 pieces of information, education and communication materials have so far been distributed.
