37,000 children included in Nigeria in 2016
Adewole told African Check that he was reporting UNAids data that showed Nigeria in 2016 the highest department (26.9%) of new HIV mother-to-child diseases among the 23 priority countries of the organization.

Uncertainty in estimating child disease
But the number of new children preserved in Nigeria may be as low as 22,000 or more than 56,000. This is why researchers need to have more idea when it comes to assessing the number of diseases in children, UNAID is a definitionNext Post This improves uncertainty.
"For example, the areas around the estimates of adult HIV patients are lower than those around the estimates of HIV infection in babies, which require additional data on how often & # 39, which is among women who are pregnant and likely to spread HIV to a mother-to-child, their own uncertainty, "the method says.
Although the data for children under the age of 15 and not just babies, Ekanmian said UNAids believed other methods of disease "caused a small fraction of the total number of HIV-receiving children."
New HIV / Aids will be investigated for Nigeria

Frank Lule, the regional consultant on HIV / Aids at her & # 39; WHO Regional Office for Africa, The The survey seemed likely to show that a mother's mother had a mother's displacement; below the previously stated levels. This was due to the fact that it was done, census data was used to estimate the number of children born to women with HIV who had been diagnosed with HIV; affecting HIV and this was likely to increase the number of children who thought HIV had been preserved from their mothers.
Depressed mothers can take care of them
Dr Awoyemi Abayomi, senior lecturer in the biological science department department at the museum Tai Solarin University of Education, he said that there was a lack of sensation for one reason for a high level of high mother to a child.
"Niger women arrested by HIV are not aware of the precise, precise, precautionary steps, during and after pregnancy. In order to correct the statistics, it is necessary to deal with the case here. "
The country MICS Survey found in 2007 only 13% Niger women were tested for HIV and were familiar with their status. This figure fell to 11% in 2012, but to grow up 34.8% in 2016/17.
Decision: In 2016 the highest number of children who have been involved with HIV that are leading in Nigeria out of 23 countries
