Nation observes World Aids Day
This year's slogan for the day is “Let's raise hands of unity, let’s prevent AIDS.” On the occasion, the STI/AIDS Network of Bangladesh, Ministry of Health & Family Welfare and various NGOs brought out a processions from the Shahabag intersection on Thursday morning and paraded different thoroughfares before ending at Osmani Udyan. They will hold a rally at Osmani Udyan where Health & Family Welfare Minister Mohammad Nasim is scheduled to attend. Begum Roksana Quader, additional secretary of the Health Ministry, inaugurated the rally with a call to the youth to be aware of the HIV effect. She said: “The disease spreads rapidly due to lack of consciousness among people particularly the young generation. Having education is mandatory in preventing the fatal disease.” MM Anwar Ullah, secretary general of STI/AIDS Network of Bangladesh, said the programme has been arranged for the youths to make them aware about the disease. He stressed for more campaigns and the state assistance to remove the social stigma and misconception about HIV. World Aids Day is celebrated on December 1 every year across the world to create awareness about HIV/AIDS.
