PRESIDENT Ratu Epeli Nailatikau says he is happy there are no reported HIV cases involving students in Fiji.

Speaking at Balata High School in Tavua on Wednesday, Ratu Epeli urged students to be extra careful when making decisions that could impact on their lives.

He also reminded the students of government's commitment towards ensuring that persons living with HIV and AIDS did not face discrimination and ensured that victims had access to antiretroviral drugs.

"According to statistics for Fiji, there are no students that are currently reported and I pray that it remains like that," Ratu Epeli said.

However, he urged students to concentrate on studying and fulfilling their dreams and to live life to the fullest.

"Government has brought a level playing field for all and with term three already well underway, I wish those students sitting for external exams all the best.

"Remember you are competing with the rest of Fiji, so give it your best shot."

The president visited Tavua College yesterday to advocate on HIV and AIDS awareness.
