In a setback to those rallying for a legislation that seeks to protect the rights of people living with HIV/AIDS, Health Minister Ghulam Nabi Azad said the government is planning to remove from the proposed bill the chapter of medical treatment. "The minister stated the government would be removing the chapter on treatment from the bill. The chapter mandates the government to provide free of cost treatment to people living with HIV as well as free preventive services to protect people from contracting HIV," a member of the delegation said in a statement.
