Educational establishments must not discriminate against HIV-infected children

On September 7th, the Ministry of Education and Training sent a document to provincial departments of education and training not to discriminate against HIV-infected children in educational establishments.

Accordingly, educational establishments must ensure the right to study, work and live with the community of HIV-infected people, including children; and encourage HIV-infected people to participate in HIV/AIDS prevention activities of the establishment.

Educational institutions have to make plans and measures to prevent discrimination against HIV-infected people.
