Remember AIDS does not discriminate caste, creed, race, religion, educational or social status. Prevention of AIDS is our joint responsibility. Education and awareness is the only weapon in our hand. Let us accept the challenge to fight against AIDS. We must support and care for the people with HIV / AIDS with compassion and understanding. We need to be aware of the AIDS and very frankly it’s the demand of time, if we really want to eradicate AIDS from the society then we need to discuss about AIDS in society. Though Indian government is trying a lot to bring awareness about AIDS in the society but the real awareness can be brought in ourselves when we become determined to know the real cause and preventive measures of AIDS.
