WE can beat HIV/AIDS by working together, says a high school student in Suva.

Mahatma Gandhi Memorial High School head boy Aman Shankar said the President, Ratu Epeli Nailatikau's, expression of advocacy as a multi-faceted approach involving family values and preventative measures was the perfect way to sum up how to beat the killer disease. He said Ratu Epeli???s presence at the school to launch the HIV/AIDS week would empower them.

School principal Kailash Rajput said students were asked to participate in oratory contest, poster and essay competitions as part of the awareness week.

"We are making our students concerned," Ms Rajput said. "Making them take action about what's happening around the country and that is to fight HIV/AIDS and make them aware."
