A BRIEF SUMMARY OF THE PAPER PRESENTED ON THE HIV CAMPAIGN AND FREE MEDICAL SERVICES HELD AT DIZENGOF AREA, IBADAN OYO STATE ON MONDAY 20TH JULY,2009
BY Adisa Kabiru Adeniyi
The epidemic of HIV/AIDS has become a global, national and local concern in view of its adverse effect on the human socio-economic development. There is no segment of our national development that is spared. As a matter of fact, there is no community or settlement that has not witnessed the pang of the epidemic. The menace has sent millions of people worldwide to the grave prematurely while it has infected many more since it was discovered more than two decades ago.
According to the sentinel 2008 survey about 2.95 million people are estimated to be living with the virus in the country with a national prevalence of 4.6 percent. Nigeria is rated the third country in the world with the largest population of HIV/AIDS victims, coming behind India and South Africa.
At this juncture therefore, I want to put it on record that since the inauguration of our Foundation, we have been fighting and combating this dreadful disease through awareness campaign and free test for people in their thousands to know their status. We did not leave poverty alleviation behind; through our poverty alleviation programme, we have empowered quite a number of our people.
GCDF achievements so far include successful organization of HIV/AIDS awareness campaign and free test at the Oyo State School of Nursing, Eleyele, Ibadan; on HIV/AIDS and empowerment at Bishop Phillip Academy, Ibadan; clearing of the bush at the School of Handicap, Iwo, Osun state; series of lectures on HIV/AIDS prevention; training on how fast the virus can spread; an holistic examination of a life with HIV/AIDS in conjunction with Ifesowapo Social Club, Monatan, Ibadan; free HIV/AIDS test for Monatan Club; recruitment of blood donors at Sharia College, Iwo; training on all cosmetics as well as entrepreneurship development workshops and caring for Orphans and vulnerable children.
Let me re-emphasize that Guildance Community Development Foundation has been up and doing in advocating abstinence from unprotected sex, even with a strong back up message that protected sex is not 100 per cent safe which calls for faithfulness with one’s spouse(s). This is because various studies have shown that majority of the infected people became victims through sexual intercourse. However, it is also imperative to state that HIV/AIDS spread is not limited to sexual intercourse alone; there are other means responsible for the transmission of the disease. Some of them are: using non-sterilized instrument in hospitals, saloons, using the same razor blade with an infected person.
Once again HIV/AIDS is real. If somebody is infected, the fact is that the person can only be treated but cannot be cure except through divine intervention and this goes with the saying that “Prevention is better than cure.”
The rationale behind taking this campaign to this stratum of the society is to mobilize each household to drum support for the effective sensitization and the education of people around us that HIV/AIDS is real.

PROJECT COUPLE COUNSELLING IN NIGERIA
A project on couples counseling and HIV testing is being contemplated among target population in selected communities in Nigeria. A project on couples counseling and HIV testing is being contemplated among target population in selected communities in Nigeria.
FIVE PROJECT QUESTIONS REQUIRED (60 - 90 MINUTES)
1. What is your innovation? 
Guildance Community Development Foundation has been involved in campaign against HIV/AIDS with couple couples counseling and testing as a component. This has been at a low scale for obvious reason. The technical approach has been personal interaction with couple at community based family interaction level. Structures have been developed through our peculiar strategies. Using social-religious network, our foundation will continue to breed cohort of couples with interest in voluntary counseling.
2. Who gains the most? 
Society at large, couple and multiple partners gain the momentum. Out of more than 150Million people in Nigeria, about 20 million individuals lack the local resources, financial means and proper access to even basic medical diagnostics especially-HIV. With our particular focus on the diagnosis of diseases such as HIV, anemia and diabetes, we are helping to bring the clinic to the patient and eliminating the long trips and extensive turn-around times between rural diagnostics.
3. Who pays? 
Initially, our sponsors and partners will pay for our product. With our product and implementation system, they will receive a powerful new diagnostic technology that easily integrates into their existing health care delivery structure. Once we have gained local traction through these NGOs, we aim to gain the support of the Nigeria national government. We are confident that Ministry of health will recognize the value in our venture and will seek to include it in their rural outreach program.
4. What is your success? 
We rely on our expert. After cultivating relationships with NGO's in Nigeria and rural health centers, we aim to partner with the Youth Movement. To maintain these relationships, we will establish an office responsible for assembly, facilitating distribution, and customer service. Then, we will utilize our connections to implement and distribute our product to the points of care in need of our innovation. Further, we will collaborate with our partners to educate the public.
5. How will you do it? 
A standard operational procedure to conform to sound ethical principles good clinical practice and set objectives and goals of international health on the subject matter shall form the guidelines to implement the project. Guildance Community Development Foundation will endeavour to establish partnership with other NGOs with similar objectives for successful implementation of the project.
