Dear All,

A highly objectionable public notice about an HIV infected person has appeared on page 5
in MIDDAY newspaper (Mumbai edition) of 15th May,10

A 'responsible' newspaper of Mumbai, Midday has acted in utter bad taste and has evinced unsound judgement ,the moment it was decided by them to print(WITH PHOTOGRAPH !!!) such a public notice about a reported HIV person mentioning his name,address and a photograph with a notice amounting to "Beware'" of him or sort.

We all feel very strongly about the issue and as enlightened global citizens/HIV programme implementers /community struggling to fight the second epidemic of stigma and discrimination,
we must take appropriate action and ,inter alia,voice our concern to the newpaper by sending

There has to be ZERO TOLERANCE to any such (even if inadvertent) acts of commission.
In solidarity,
Dr.Rajesh Gopal.
