Raipur: Chhattisgarh has 4,082 HIV positive patients with 43 per cent belonging to the 25–34 age group, a survey report of the state government said.

“As per the tests results confirmed by dozens of blood banks and sexually transmitted diseases (STD) clinics operational across the state, Chhattisgarh has now reported a total of 4,082 HIV positive,” an economic survey report of the state government released on Wednesday said.

“Raipur district has topped with 1,840 HIV positive patients followed by Durg district with 559 cases and Rajnandgaon stood third with 435 cases,” the report said.

The state’s insurgency–hit, impoverished tribal–dominated Dantewada district has the lowest of just 13 HIV positive patients, it said.

The government has launched a massive awareness campaign across the state of over 20 million people on ways to prevent AIDS, the report said.
