 Desh Bhagat University Faculty of Nursing, observed two-week long AIDS Awareness Programme with the theme “Closing the gap in HIV prevention and treatment”. Students in large number from all Nursing classes along with their teachers took part in it with full zest and zeal. The students organised “AIDS Awareness Camp” at Community Health Centre (Amloh), Civil Hospital, (Fatehgarh Sahib), and several another places.

To mark the event, the students displayed posters on AIDS awareness at these places and performed role play on AIDS to make the public aware regarding the prevention of the disease. During this drive, Dr. Gurditt Singh Sodhi (Civil Surgeon, Fatehgarh Sahib) and Dr. Alka (SMO, Amloh) also addressed the public and appreciated the students for this highly informative movement on AIDS.

Colourful banners and placards with awareness messages were carried by the students to change the public perception about AIDS.
