Dimapur, February 16 (MExN): Network of Mokokchung District People Living with HIV/AIDS (NMP+) has successfully conducted Bharti Infratel Ltd. sponsored HIV/AIDS Sensitization Drive in 30 villages of Mokokchung district in the year 2011.
A press note issued by Toshi Sangpi, President NMP+ Mokokchung stated that the consent to conduct the sensitization camps along with enthusiastic participation in large numbers is indispensable and potent in the fight against HIV/AIDS. “Such crucial cooperation by the villages has resulted in around five thousand people (sixty to seventy percent of the total population in most villages) now equipped with HIV/AIDS education.
Moreover declaration and pledge by participants at every camp to disseminate HIV/AIDS education and be agents in eradication of stigma and discrimination will surely provide the missing thrust to the ‘Halt and Reverse policy’ in the fight against the epidemic,” he stated in the note. NMP+ therefore appeals the people of Nagaland for participation in large numbers in the Bharti Infratel Ltd. sponsored HIV/AIDS sensitization camps.
 The sensitization drive is also carried forward to other districts of Nagaland commencing with the conduct of a camp at Zunheboto district on February 19.  The note further mentioned that the success of the sensitization drive in Mokokchung District has affected the sponsorship of the HIV/AIDS sensitization Drive in other districts of Nagaland as well. Network of Mokokchung District People Living with HIV/AIDS (NMP+) also stated gratitude to Directorate of Women Development, Kohima for the continual care and support to Women Living with HIV/AIDS.
“The recent nutrition aid of dal, rice, ghee, etc. is among several Samaritan initiatives of the Directorate of Women Development, Kohima for uplift of People Living with HIV/AIDS (PLHA). Such benevolence has underscored PLHA conviction that stigma and discrimination has gradually given way to care and support through the compassion and generosity of fellow human beings by Directorate of Women Development, Kohima,” stated the note.
