AIDS Prevention Awareness Hits Republic of Korea

October 1, 2004

On Thursday, the Korea Center for Disease Control and Prevention announced plans to broadcast TV ads for condoms in October to promote their use against AIDS. Health centers around the country will supply condoms to anyone who requests them, the agency said; it will also hire public relations experts for a national campaign to warn the population of the danger of AIDS and other STDs. Between 1985 and 1994, 410 Koreans became infected with HIV. As of the first half of 2004, 302 Koreans had contracted HIV, bringing the total number to 2,842.
