HIV/AIDS Awareness Campaign
She said that when she talked to some men and women about the importance of using Condoms for men who make love to prostitutes, one woman has asked her why is she promoting free sex.
It seems that the Ministry of Education is also having difficulty in campaigning HIV/ AIDS awareness to school students. This can be seen from its refusal to provide special lesson about HIV/AIDS at schools.
Kompas quoted the Minister of Education M. Nuh as saying that information about HIV/AIDS shall not be given in special lesson at schools but will instead be integrated into various lessons e.g Religion, Biology, Sociology etc.
Considering that HIV/AIDS is an incurable and very contagious decease, and the number of people infected in Indonesia is growing rapidly, I hope that the government would drastically increase HIV/AIDS awareness campaign to the public, especially school students.
