Due to the outbreak of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) in December 2019, the World Health Organization (WHO) had prioritized 13 African countries including Nigeria as the most vulnerable countries for importation of COVID-19.

COVID-19 is a serious disease and all people living with HIV should take all recommended preventive measures to minimize exposure to, and prevent infection by, the virus that causes COVID-19. As in the general population, older people living with HIV or people living with HIV with heart or lung problems may be at a higher risk of becoming infected with the virus and of suffering more serious symptoms.

In the face of the recent emergence of pneumonia associated with the novel coronavirus, many feel worried. It is understandable for people to experience the fear and anxiety in face of uncertainty; they can help us cope with the situation in short term.

In collaboration with the National AIDS Control Programme, Breakthrough ACTION launched a campaign in March 2020 in the fight against HIV in Côte d’Ivoire. The campaign is intended to improve retention in 31 high-volume priority care sites for people living with HIV in Abidjan.
