Regent H.Achmad Fikry said, he welcomed HSS District to be one of the regions to conduct a review of HIV/AIDS and TB. He said his government had always tried to prevent and overcoming HIV/AIDS, but all cannot be separated from the behavior of the sufferers themselves.
“In this district some people are affected by HIV/AIDS, but some are still reluctant to acknowledge and seek treatment,” he said in a meeting also attended by Head of the HSS Health Agency Siti Zainab and Director of Brigjend H.Hasan Basry District Hospital Hj.Rasyidah.
All the facilities to support the handling of HIV/AIDS and TB are the concern of his side, while the visit of the Ministry of Health and WHO will provide input and suggestion for making policies in future improvement.
