Bhopal: March 25, 2010
With Madhya Pradesh reporting over 400 new HIV-AIDS cases in 2009, medical centres are to be set up in every district so that patients, especially rural ones, can get treatment without having to travel long distances. The directive to create more Antiretroviral Therapy (ART) link centres was issued by Health Minister Anup Mishra. He also said grants to NGOs whose work was not evident should be stopped immediately. State AIDS Control Society Director Omesh Mundra said the setting up of ART centres enables easy detection and treatment of HIV-AIDS patients.
