BIS #4620 AIDS AWARENESS AT SHELTER DON BOSCO

by BIS Correspondent

 

MUMBAI, DEC 7, 2015: A United Nations report recently claimed that India has the third-highest number of people living with HIV in the world, with 2.1 million people living with the disease. On December 1, World AIDS Day was celebrated and students and staff of Shelter Don Bosco marked the day with an educational session to raise awareness about the disease.  

 

Dr Sunita Shanbaug, a very close collaborator with Shelter Don Bosco addressed those present about the disease. She spoke about how this virus starts and what precautions should be taken to be safe. The session began shortly after 9.15am and ended at 10am.

 

Dr Shanbaug also spoke about how the disease affects human health and the social life of a person. The session was very interactive and the boys of Shelter learnt a lot from the informative session. Towards the end of the programme, Father Gregory D'Almeida, rector of the Shelter felicitated Dr Shanbaug for sharing her valuable knowledge on HIV AIDS and bringing awareness on the same.
