Special camp held for Tihar inmates on HIV/AIDS
New Delhi: In a special camp organised at the Tihar Jail here Tuesday, inmates were educated about the perils of HIV/AIDS and how the dreaded disease spreads.
The prisoners were educated about the disease through audio-visual and interactive sessions organised by a team of public charitable trust MIW Foundation, an official release from Tihar said.
"The MIW Foundation has an elaborative and systematic plan to organise community-based and general HIV/AIDS awareness programme for the spread of useful information by educating masses about the disease," said Ashish Bhutani, managing trustee of MIW Foundation.
Tihar, one of the largest prison complexes in South Asia, houses almost 12,200 prisoners against the sanctioned strength of 6,250.
