As some 9,000 police safeguard the youths, medical teams will be handing out condoms as well as treating illnesses and injuries. "As everyone is aware, prevention is the best measure against HIV/AIDS," said Varin Tankasiri, secretary for the event's medical team. "We prepared condoms to be made available to everyone, all they need do is ask for them."
