Awareness needed about Aids as disease not curse KARACHI: Awareness needed to be created about HIV/Aids as a disease and not a curse, and all the stakeholders should join hands with the government to eliminate the epidemic from the country. These views were expressed by renowned health expert Dr Shehla Wali while leading an awareness walk arranged by Inter Global Human Development Society (IGHDS) here on Saturday - to mark the World Aids Day. Dr Shehla said that the government was fully aware of its responsibility towards checking the menace in the country and would leave no stone unturned to help out those who had already been affected from the disease. She maintained that new funding by individual, governments and the Global Fund to Fight Aids, Tuberculosis and Malaria would go a long way in helping the countries fighting the menace.
