AIDS Cases In Sudan Increasing

People in south Sudan are at a higher risk of developing HIV/AIDS, Sudanese Minister of Labor, Public Service and Manpower, Alison Manani Magaya has warned. Khartoum Monitor reports that Magaya issued the warning at a graduation ceremony for an HIV/AIDS training program.

Magaya said that the influx of refugees from other countries having a high prevalence of HIV was a concern. "The challenge is how to reduce the danger in south Sudan. He adds the government would conduct HIV/AIDS tests at reception camps of returning refugees and at the same time launch propaganda campaign at evacuation sites. The youth and students die in a great number of HIV/AIDS and they need to be made aware of its dangers."
