It is estimated that by the end of 20th century there were 40 million people infected with HIV
all over the world and India has been leading with the highest number of cases (ranging from 10-20 million).
We may not be infected but will definitely be affected indirectly by it.
Hence, it is a duty of every citizen of India to have detailed knowledge about this disease”. Due to lack of knowledge about AIDS people have fear in their mind against the victims of this disease. Because of fear of social boycott, AIDS patients and their relatives hide their HIV status. Many doctors (due to fear of getting infection) also refuse
to treat these patients. There is danger of AIDS for everybody and only thing that can save us
is to be completely informed.
