Gurugram, Dec. 1, 2021 : HIV remains a major public health issue that affects millions of people across the world. The spread of Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) leads to Acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS) which attacks the immune system of the patient and reduces its resistance to other diseases, thereby putting the life of the patient at risk. Although the world has made significant progress in recent decades, there’s a lot that needs to be done. As per World Health Organization’s (WHO), 3.77 crore people were living with AIDS in 2020. According to the latest HIV estimates report (2019) of the Government, India is estimated to have around 23.49 lakh people living with HIV/AIDS in 2019. To commemorate the World AIDS Day, School of Education, NSS & Rotaract Club of ASU in collaboration with Medanta Medicity, Gurugram, organised an interactive virtual session raising awareness of the life-threatening disease and working towards ending the stigma surrounding it. The theme of the session was in consonance with the theme of World AIDS Day 2021: ‘End inequalities. End AIDS.’ The WHO, along with its partners are highlighting the growing inequalities in access to essential HIV services.
