The month December is known as AIDS awareness month. 1st of December is designated as World AIDS Day. Despite of many efforts, people do not know the facts about how to protect themselves and others from HIV. Stigma & discrimination remain a reality for many people living with HIV. World AIDS Day is important as it reminds the public and Government that HIV has not gone away – there is still a vital need to increase awareness, fight prejudice and improve education.
As part of it JSW Cement’s, Nandyal, also has taken up awareness campaign through folk plays among the general public in the villages Bilakalagudur, Bujunur and also among the truckers at the plant.
“AIDS affects many parts of society, and so everyone needs to be aware of HIV and AIDS.”
