America gives Nigeria N32bn to conduct Census

The United States government has donated about $90 million (N32bn) to support the forthcoming HIV survey in Nigeria.

The Minister of Health, Isaac Adewole, disclosed this on Thursday in Abuja at the signing of the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) on the survey.

The agreement was signed by the minister, the United States Ambassador to Nigeria, Stuart Symington, and the National Agency for the Control of Aids (NACA).

The survey, tagged Nigeria Aids Indicators and Impact Survey (NAIIS), is the largest in the world and Nigeria is the 12th country conducting it.

It will begin in June and last for about six months across the 36 states and Federal Capital Territory (FCT). It aims to reach a sample size of about 170,000 people.
