Meeting held for police personnel
Every person should strive to spread awareness for AIDS control, District Health Education Officer Gunasekhar said on Friday.
Addressing an awareness meeting for Armed Reserve police personnel in the police parade ground here, he explained the mode in which AIDS could spread, the preventive measures and the difference between AIDS and other diseases.
AIDS does not spread by touching an AIDS patient or by mosquito bites, Dr. Gunasekhar clarified.
Police should safeguard their health for discharging their duties more effectively, he stated.
