Information about HIV/AIDs prevention, treatment and rehabilitation was shared by a doctor and a representative of a local NGO “Nabiji Momavlisaken”. Participants of the meeting emphasized that the celebration of the World AIDS Day is important as it reminds the public and Government that HIV has not gone away – there is still a vital need to increase awareness, fight prejudices and improve education.
