CHAPTER ONE

INTRODUCTION

In Nigeria as well as other countries of issue of public interest including government programmes or policies could not be regarded as mere fallacy but rather they involves ideas, messages on existing public events that happened to people based on experiences, beliefs and other factors included in the socio-economic and educational backgrounds.

It is on this note that the federal government in collaboration with other countries of the world, through the world Health organization (WHO) decided to embark on the country, hence broadcast media campaign is a guider means diversified population.

The study may not look into the AIDS control programmes or the imminent dangers inherent in AIDS and so on but will xray the information management and the use of information or campaigns to facilitate proper public understanding of the message under which the campaigns is conducted.

This study will examine the degree at which Nigerian youths have reacted to the AIDS issue and to what extent these campaign have helped to alert them on the dangers of AIDS.

Before delving into the study proper, it is reasonable to make recommendations as ways of improvement in dissemination of information about AIDS.

Enhancement of AIDS in Nigeria

As part of its efforts to eradicate this deadly scourge which has defied medication, the federal Government through the ministry of Health in 1986 established the National AIDS control programmes in response to public concerns raised about the presence of Human Immuno Deficiency virus (HIV) infestation in Nigeria.

In response to the increasing evidence and the intense public debate on the existence of AIDS in Nigeria, the then minister of Health, professor Olukoya Ransome Kuti in 1987 instituted the National Expert Advisory committee on AIDS (NEACA) and was charged with the responsibility of establishing whether or not AIDS exists in Nigeria. They were mandated to advise the government as well as drawing up programmes strategies and activities to prevent HIV infection in the country. The committees report made it clear that HIV/AIDS was in Nigeria and warned that unless immediate steps were taken to prevent and control its spread, the country will be faced with a major public health problem. This necessitated the establishment of AIDS co-ordinating units and over 21 HIV testing facilities in the various states of the federation. Training was undertaken for personnel to control these centers as well as public enlightenment production of educational programmes and materials like posters, headbills, bulletin and books on AIDS were embarked upon.
