Rashrtiya Rifles Battalion under Romeo Force today organised a health awareness lecture on AIDS at Magnar, district Poonch. The lecture was to reach out to people of remote area and disseminate information about causes of HIV and its prevention.
Regimental medical officer took the lecture and explained the causes, symptoms and preventive measures to deal with this disease. Lecture was attended by villagers of Magnar and surrounding villages. The people in these villages are educationally backward and awareness drive on such important health issues in these areas is very limited. The Sarpanch and other prominent persons of the village applauded the noble work being undertaken and conveyed their gratitude for the selfless service being rendered by the Indian Army to educate the locals of these areas and help in ensuring an AIDS free society.
