DMRC launches it today for its employees

NEW DELHI: An AIDS awareness campaign organised by the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation began in the Capital on Wednesday. The first event was a sensitisation workshop where safety managers and other senior contractors’ staff were provided information about HIV and AIDS.

The Voluntary Health Association of India, a non-government organisation, is the implementing agency for this campaign.

“Managers and other staff members were made aware of all aspects of HIV/AIDS including its mode of spread and symptoms, vulnerability of the migrant population to HIV and the role that managers and other senior staff can play in reducing the vulnerability of the labour force. Information regarding voluntary counselling and testing centres was also made available during the workshop,” said a DMRC spokesperson.
