AIDS awareness campaign to focus on J&K tribes
It will be in their mother tongue; folk media to be employed Jammu: The nomadic tribes of far-flung picturesque Himalayan range of Jammu and Kashmir are the focus of an HIV/AIDS awareness campaign. The tribes are being imparted knowledge about the ways and means to prevent the dreaded disease. The Tribal Research and Cultural Foundation has launched a fourfold programme throughout the State with special focus on the tribes of Gujjars and Bakerwals. This was in view of lack of knowledge among people about deadly diseases and sexually transmitted infections.
