UNHCR launches HIV/AIDS awareness project in Nepal

The United Nations refugee agency has launched a project in Nepal to increase HIV and AIDS services among conflict-affected populations.

Mr. Abraham Abraham, UNHCR Representative in Nepal, said, “This new programme is a result of a joint UN assessment undertaken in November 2006 in Banke, Ilam and Kathmandu, and I am confident that together with these NGO partners, we can better respond with respect to the protection and prevention of HIV/AIDS.”
