According to the National Strategic Plan there are six new ways to fight HIV/AIDS in the next five years.
"One of the strategies is to strengthen aspects of leadership, commitment and collaboration in fighting AIDS at international, national, state and district level. Second is increasing technical capabilities and human and financial resources, and third to reduce the risks of HIV spreading among drug addicts and their sex partners".
He said there was a necessity to reduce the vulnerability of women, teenagers and children to HIV virus, and also of those secluded by the society such as sex workers, transsexuals and homosexuals.
Greater accessibility of information on HIV/AIDS, as well as services on prevention, cure, care and support to those infected, is the need of the hour. The Cabinet wants to include courses on HIV/AIDS in the National Service curriculum, the health minister added.
