A CROWD of about 500 people took to the streets with the President Ratu Epeli Nailatikau in a march for the fight against the spread of AIDS on Saturday.

Accompanied by youth and non-government organisations as well as civil servants, the march highlighted Fiji's care for people living with the disease.

Speaking at the march, Ratu Epeli said more needed to be done with the increasing AIDS cases every year. Thirty new cases of AIDS were discovered in Fiji this year.
