Assam doles out cash to fight AIDS

Assam will dole out cash to check the spread of HIV/AIDS.

The ruling Congress government in the state has decided to offer ‘financial assistance’ of Rs1 lakh each to the families of those who have died of the disease.

“Our objective is to give financial relief to the families of those who have died of the disease,” Assam’s health minister Himanta Biswa Sarma told DNA. He said the financial assistance would be of great relief, especially to those women whose husbands had died of the disease.

“The scheme will be launched in April and it will roughly cover around 1000 families. The idea is to bring everybody under institutional framework,” Sarma said.
