A clinical officer in Torit State Hospital is encouraging the local population to visit the nearest health facility for medical test so as to know their health status.
 
Obalim Peter Simon says out of 1500 people tested for HIV and AIDS last month, 19 were confirmed positive.
 
He appreciates the increasing number of people going for check up in the facility.
 
“Every time the number of people who come for checkup is really very good like last month we tested about 400 within the facility. These are people who come to the facility and we asked them about HIV testing and they take it up. People are coming for testing apart from those testing in the communities”, Peter requests.
 
He discloses that “in total we have tested over 1500 last month and 19 were positive. So you find the rate of people coming for check-up is increasingly good and we still encourage many people actually everybody to be tested”.
 
According to Peter, the rate of sexual transmitted diseases in Torit State is high.
 
He calls for awareness to prevent and avoid rampant transfusion.
 
“The first important thing is, an individual has to be aware of the disease because if you don’t know, you will never understand what to do about it. Like when you have gonorrhea you may think someone has bewitched you, you may think it is because of certain food you have eaten, you will never understand that thing, Peter enlightens”. 
 
“People should be aware of these diseases this is the most important thing and how to treat these diseases”, he adds.
 
Clinical officer Obalim Simon Peter was speaking to Radio Emmanuel in an interview in his office early this week.
