INCLUSION

After having salt visits to the truck drivers and getting their views and their dream towards a free HIV/AIDS generation it emerged that we are only targeting the truck drivers alone and leaving behind their spouses who are not spared either by the pandemic.Some drivers said that they themselves have done everything to abstain or use Condom if it is a must ,but back at home their spouses have friends who they move around with and they don't use preventive measures to protect themselves .So the…See More
