AIDS Prevention and Our Health
AIDS, as one of the major global health problems, has caused more than 3500 people’s death up to now. In 2017, 940,000 people died of the diseases related to HIV. According to the report published by United Nations Children’s Fund on November 29, about 3000,000 young people and children carry the virus all over world.
Executive Director of United Nations Children’s Fund, Henrietta Fore said, “The prevention of AIDS from mother to fetus transmission has been more effective, but far from enough. To treat and prevent the virus from spreading among the older children has not been good, as it should be.” NFLS organized the popularization of the knowledge of AIDS around World AIDS Day with the participation of student associations.
