Journalists’ Forum Assam and AIDS Prevention Society have organized a media orientation program on HIV/AIDS on November 30 at Guwahati Press Club. The program, where Dr SI Ahmed is expected to join as a resource person, will begin at 11 AM.
Dr Ahmed will give an overview of the HIV infection ratio around the globe and also highlight the risk factors for the residents of Assam and northeast India. Though the annual infection to the deadly virus is decreasing because of massive publicity and public awareness program by the authority, related NGOs and the media, there is definitely risk factor, asserted the HIV/AIDS expert.
