JAMMU: JK Public School (JKPS) Panjtirthi on Wednesday observed AIDS Day which commenced with a talk by Aqsa Jan who enlightened the audience with various facts and figures of the dreadful syndrome.
She explained that the Acquired Immuno Deficiency Syndrome, popularly known by its abbreviation AIDS is a fatal disease as it attacks and destroys the immune system of the body. She further emphasised that one cannot get AIDS from a hug or a handshake or having a meal with the friend. The Principal of JKPS Panjtirthi, Suman Banbah expressed that prevention is better than cure. Ignorance and prejudice are fuelling the spread of a preventable disease. She said, “HIV patients need to be cared with compassion and must be allowed to be lived with dignity. Hate the disease but not the diseased. It’s not the years in our life that count. It is the life in the years that makes a difference.”
