He said, “Currently, with over a million patient on our treatment list, if today the donor funding that comes from US government through PEPFAR and Global Fund seize to flow,  Nigeria will have a minimum of one million to put on treatment for the domestic resources.

“This is enormous at the rate of N50, 000 per person per year. The way we treat HIV now using direct procurement will require N50billion  to treat one million HIV positive individuals in one year.
