Police personnel, including senior officers, here on Saturday participated in a daylong training programme on HIV/AIDS awareness.

This workshop was conducted at camp of No.1 Battalion of Manipur Rifles in Imphal.

Presiding over the inaugural session of the programme, Manipur’s Director General of Police, Y Joykumar in his address said the police had a major role in prevention of HIV/AIDS.

“I think all of us are aware, and I don’t need to emphasis it, what kind of danger HIV poses for the entire mankind. And it is for this reason that this problem is being dealt on the global scene with efforts to contain and prevent further expansion or the spread of this ailment,” said Y Joykumar, Director General of Police (DGP), Manipur.

Further, he noted, that the police must make a concerted effort to prevent discrimination of the people living with HIV/AIDS.

According to the United Nations, 5.7 million Indians are living with HIV/AIDS, the world’s largest caseload.

According to the recently published reports by the World Bank and other agencies, India will have to scale up prevention of HIV.
