Press Trust of India Examines HIV/AIDS Among Indian Populations Living in Mauritius
September 4, 2008
The Press Trust of India on Tuesday examined HIV/AIDS among Indian populations on the island of Mauritius. According to Audrey dHotman de Villiers, an advocate working with an HIV/AIDS prevention group in Mauritius, Hindu leaders have not been vocal in the community or taken responsibility to fight HIV/AIDS, despite signs of increased drug use and risky sexual behavior. De Villiers said her organization believes that "sufficient work was done" by the end of last year for HIV/AIDS awareness and prevention on the island, except among Indian populations, particularly in rural areas.
