MONROVIA, March 10 (LINA) - The National Aids Commission of Liberia says it has trained 760 security personnel from four security agencies in HIV/AIDS awareness and prevention.

The trainees came from the National Army, Bureau of Immigration and Naturalization (BIN), Liberia National Police (LNP), and the Bureau of Correction (BOC), the report reveals.

The report said the Commission also provided funding to each of the four agencies to train members of their sectors on the prevention of HIV/AIDS in peacekeeping missions, the facts and myth of HIV and sexually transmitted infections (STIs) in the conflict environment.

According to the report, the project which is being sponsored by UN Development Programme, is in compliance with the 1983 United Nations Security Council Resolution.

Meanwhile, the report has disclosed that the Ministry of Defense HIV/AIDS Unit is providing care and support to HIV positive soldiers and their families.

According to the report, the ministry is in the process of conducting a Military Integrated-Bio Behavioral Surveillance Survey for members of the AFL.
