World AIDS Day today

BSS

The World Aids Day will be observed today with the theme “Right to Health” across the country as elsewhere in the globe, reports BSS. President Abdul Hamid and Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina issued separate messages on the eve of the day wishing all-out success of the programmes marking the day.

In separate messages, they appreciated the steps taken at the national level to observe the day. In his message, President Abdul Hamid said the prevalence of HIV is less than 0.01 per cent in Bangladesh, which is a matter of relief.

“But the risk of the deadly disease, AIDS, is still prevailing in the country due to geographical location, unawareness, uncontrolled behavior of the vulnerable section of the people and fallacy among the people,” he added.

He attached the importance to taking effective measures by the NGOs and development agencies alongside the government to increase awareness among the people, remove prejudices and change the people's behavior in this regard.
