ISLAMABAD: President Dr Arif Alvi reaffirmed Pakistan’s commitment to control the spread of AIDS  (Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome) through the provision of testing and treatment services to AIDS victims. 

He said AIDS could be prevented and treated with meaningful engagement with vulnerable communities. 

In his message on World AIDS Day, he said Pakistan was committed to providing quality health services to all citizens equally without any discrimination or stigmatization with an aim to build a stronger society and healthier country. 

“We also rededicate ourselves to further strengthen the HIV response at the national and provincial levels, support data-driven solutions, expand access to testing and treatment, ensure economic empowerment of the vulnerable section of society, and fight the stigma and discrimination attached to HIV diseases and its victims,” he said. 

President Alvi emphasized that by joining hands together with partners like UNAIDS, NGOs, and the private sector, new ways could be explored to address HIV and AIDS
