 Indian Designer Creates AIDS Awareness Through 'Condom Kurta Shirt'
An Indian designer has sent a shirt to the UN Secretary General, which has condoms stitched to it.

The 28-year-old man has attached the emergency condoms in the collar and other spots on the fabric.

"AIDS has killed more than 25 million people so far and an estimated 33.2 million people worldwide live with HIV," the Daily Express quoted him as saying.

He added: "The world need more awareness campaign for the protection from this deadly virus.

"I hope that my condom Kurta shirt, a traditional Indian shirt, will encourage people to think about protection against unsafe sex.

"The UN thanked me via email and encouraged by this I also approached the Health minister of India - but they didn't pay any attention to me."

Rahman used 1,025 condoms in each shirt, reports the Austrian Times.
