QĐND – Tuesday, July 06, 2010, 20:46 (GMT+7)

More than 7 million needles have been provided free in the first five months of this year, up 21 percent compared to the same period last year.

This is part of a HIV/AIDS prevention project funded by the World Bank, which is being carried out in 20 provinces and cities.

In the reviewed period, more than 3 million condoms have also been delivered free to sex workers, down 1.3 percent over the same period last year.

At a meeting in Hoi An on July 5 to review the project’s results in the first half of this year, deputy Minister of Health, Trinh Quan Huan stressed that the project has achieved significant results thanks to the great efforts of the project management board and the support of provincial and municipal leaders.

Huan proposed stepping up the project in the second half of this year and conducting a survey on the trends of HIV in some provinces.

The project management board also agreed to have an additional 12 provinces and cities involved in the project, raising the total number of participants to 32.
