Vice President Launches AIDS Awareness Campaign for Youth

Vice President Bhairon Singh Shekhawat Tuesday launched the Youth Unite For Victory On Aids (YUVA) campaign aimed at creating awareness on HIV/AIDS// among the 450 million youths of the country.

India is home to 5.2 million AIDS patients. According to estimates, 57 percent of the HIV infected adults are from rural backgrounds. More shockingly, 35 percent of the reported AIDS cases in the country are in the age group of 15-24.
