CRPF To Issue Contraceptives To Fight AIDS

With AIDS a spiralling menace among its personnel returning from vacation, the Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) has decided to distribute condoms before they leave for home.//

"We have found that over 80 percent of the AIDS cases that have been reported were found in personnel who had returned from leave," said a CRPF official handling an anti-AIDS programme in the security force.

"Every year around 25 new AIDS cases are reported in the organisation," the official said, adding that in 2006 already around 23 cases were reported and the number could increase in the next two months.

"It was impossible that the virus could have spread because of blood transfusion or use of infected syringes by the personnel because the medical facilities available to our men is of the highest order," added another CRPF official.

"We have decided to give two packets of contraceptives to each member. This would not only protect the personnel but also their family members," he added.

He said the medical branch has been directed to make t
