AIDS: 4 Million at Risk in India

India has launched a public awareness campaign aimed at calling the attention of the population to the dangers posed by AIDS. As in other countries, AIDS is no longer restricted to drug users of male homosexuals in India, where new cases are more and more found in heterosexuals.

A mass demonstration took place on Sunday, World AIDS Day, in Calcutta, the former capital city, in support of India’s 3.8 million people infected with HIV and as a warning for the citizens of the country to take the necessary precautions so as not to become infected.
