The Ghana AIDS Commission is to distribute condoms at the New Patriotic Party (NPP) national delegates conference taking place in Koforidua this weekend.

Ms. Golda Asante, Eastern Regional Technical Coordinator of the Technical Support Unit of Ghana AIDS Commission, told the media in Koforidua the move is to prevent the spread of the disease.

According to her, though the prevalence rate in the region has slightly reduced to 2.1% it translates to the fact that 21 persons out of every 1000 residents in the region have HIV/AIDS.

She said records show that new infection is recorded everyday in the region.

According to Ms Asante, new infections are generally recorded during funfairs and political gatherings hence the need to embark on such drive at the NPP event.

The Koforidua Technical University football pitch which will host the conference is undergoing reshaping and extension to enable it host the over 6000 delegates expected to elect their national leaders.
