Dr Muhammad Alkali, the Chairman, Bauchi State Agency for the Control HIV/AIDS, Tuberculosis, Leprosy And Malaria, says some HIV positive couples have given birth to 72 HIV negative and healthy babies in the state, NAN reports.

Alkali disclosed this at a news conference to mark the 2018 World AIDS Day celebration in Bauchi on Sunday.

“Around 156 HIV couples in the state have kicked the dreaded infection in the womb with medical interventions.

“The 72 babies born to HIV-positive couples were healthy and tested negative to HIV,” Alkali said.

According to him, since the establishment of the agency in 2008, it organised and supported the match-making of 156 couples resulting in the births of 72 babies, who were HIV negative.
