KOTA KINABALU: Kota Kinabalu City Hall (DBKK) requires the support of the public in achieving its objective in the DBKK Project for Zero HIV by the year 2020.
Its Deputy Chief Director (Operation), Joannes Solidau, said the project was launched by the Chief Minister, Datuk Seri Musa Aman, last year as part of the efforts to curb and prevent HIV contraction and to achieve its target of zero record for new HIV patients as well as to prevent discrimination and AIDS related deaths.
“It is also in line with the HIV/AIDS Political Declaration that is agreed by ASEAN members.
“In this matter, the workshop is set up to come up with strategic implementation plans and to outline the next approach to be carried out until the year 2020,” he said during the closing ceremony for DBKK Heading Towards Zero HIV by 2020 Project workshop.
The two-day workshop was organized by DBKK with the cooperation of Kota Kinabalu Health Office, with the participation of 43 individuals from various government agencies and NGOs. -SayangSabah
