Ministry calls on people not to discriminate against HIV/AIDS students

To prevent discrimination against schoolchildren infected with HIV/AIDS, the Ministry of Education and Training has asked departments of Education and Training in cities and provinces nationwide to call on teachers, students and parents to enhance their knowledge of HIV/AIDS.

Departments need to have effective and suitable measures to ensure that there is no discrimination and differentiation against HIV/AIDS students at schools.

Students living with HIV/AIDS are being discriminated against around the country, which has caused the ministry to act.

The ministry, for example, needs to raise its voice about the case of 15 HIV/AIDS carriers, from the Mai Hoa AIDS Center in HCM City, who were ostracized by students and parents when they recently went to school to integrate with the community.
