 State All Set to Give Money to AIDS Victim's Kin

A one-time assistance of Rs.1 lakh to the next kin or relatives of those who die of AIDS will be provided by the Assam government.

Assam Health Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma Saturday made the announcement and said Assam will be the first state to introduce such a scheme, which will become effective from April 1.

"There are still many wrong notions about HIV and AIDS and it is kind of a taboo. Even relatives of those who die are isolated in the society. They face embarrassment for no fault of theirs," Sarma said.

He said the one-time assistance will be given so that the relatives get to earn their livelihood.

A total of 1,500 people have died of AIDS in Assam so far, he said.
