Speaking in an interview on Opemsuo radio’s morning show Nkwantananso on Thursday, October 7, 2021, she stated that 80% of people infected with HIV are through unprotected sex.
15% also are infected through motherhood and 5% is by accident.
The majority of people have multiple sexual partners and it contributes to the increasing rate of HIV infections.
