AIDS awareness education for school children’s
HIV/AIDS awareness education will be soon part of the school curriculum from Class IX in all schools as 35% of HIV patients in India are below the age of 25. The new curriculum would be made compulsory and this program is an initiative taken by the Human Resource Department of Government of India and National AIDS Control Organization.
