An analysis is made of the IV national HIV information campaign, in which the Ministry of Health trained 4,000 middle and senior schools principals.

An analysis is made of the IV national HIV information campaign, in which the Ministry of Health trained 4,000 middle and senior schools principals. The prospects for continuing the work with these 4,000 principals in the V information campaign, are also reported.
