HIV/AIDS exhibition to open in Hanoi

QĐND – Thursday, October 28, 2010, 20:45 (GMT+7)

An exhibition called “HIV/AIDS in Vietnam: 20 years of changes and challenges” will be held at the Museum of Ethnology in Hanoi on November 22 to mark HIV/AIDS prevention month (November 10-December 10).

The event will be jointly organised by the museum, the Centre for Community Health Research and Development (CCRD), the Ford Foundation and Columbia University in New York.

According to the CCRD, the event will spotlight the HIV/AIDS problem in Vietnam, past and present, with the recollections and experiences of HIV/AIDS victims as well as the difficulties faced by health staff, policy makers and researchers.

Since the first case of HIV was discovered in the country in 1990, the virus has quickly spread on a national scale and affected many aspects of Vietnamese society, it said.

It is just one of 10 events being held across the country to mark the 20th year of Vietnam’s HIV prevention campaign.
