The Director-General of the National Agency for the Control of Aids, Prof. Babatunde Osotimehin, on Wednesday said 61 per cent of Nigerians newly infected with HIV/AIDS were women and young girls.

He said the situation called for massive mobilisation of women for them to know their rights and negotiate for safe sex if the statistics were to drop drastically.

Osotimehin spoke at a workshop to strengthen NACA?s relationship with the National Council of Women Society in Abuja.
