IN an attempt to control the spread of HIV/AIDS, a team of officials has visited 18 schools and 17 communities in Vanua Levu to heighten awareness of the disease. The STOP HIV program team

consists of four champions, two advocates, one peer educator, a medical officer and counsellor. In a statement, national program co-ordinator Andrew Prasad said the program was geared towards the 2012 World AIDS Day.

"The team has reached out to 18 schools and 17 communities within the provinces of Bua and Cakaudrove," Mr Prasad said. Eight people have also sought voluntary counselling and testing.
