Community Role Crucial To AIDS Prevention - Camanor
By Philip T. Singbah, LINA Bong County Correspondent

GBARNGA, May 29 (LINA) - The Chairman of the National AIDS Commission, Dr. Ivan Camanor, says community collaboration is crucial in helping to prevent the spread of HIV/AIDS.

Speaking at the opening of a two-day HIV/AIDS training workshop in Gbarnga, Bong County at the weekend, Dr. Camanor told participants that the spread of the virus can only be reduced if community residents get involved in information sharing.

The National AIDS Commission is conducting training for fifty community members drawn from civil society, student community,
community-based organizations as well as women groups and traditional leaders in Bong County.

The training is discussing basic facts about the disease, its history, HIV Law and HIV and Human Rights.

At the end of the training exercise, participants will adopt a resolution to assist government to effectively cater to the needs of persons living with the deadly disease.
