Week-long campaign on HIV/AIDS prevention
By Tuan Minh 14:22, 2013/11/27
Hanoi students club has launched a week-long campaign on HIV/AIDS prevention and control from November 23-30.

The annual event attracts a large number of students to various activities, such as bike ride, exchanges with the homosexual community and people living with HIV, free medical check-ups, and handout of information leaflets on the fatal disease.

The campaign encourages the participation of people, particularly youngsters, in the fight against HIV/AIDS to help HIV carriers enjoy better care and reintegrate into the community.

Social organzations play an important role in implementing national programmes on HIV/AIDS prevention and control.

In Vietnam, each day has 29 people infected by the fast spread of HIV in many localities, especially among high-risk groups – drug addicts, prostitutes, and homosexuals.
