HIV/ Aids infected children should be attended to; this attention enables a child to live longer however tough the situation may be.

HIV/ Aids infected children should be attended to; this attention enables a child to live longer however tough the situation may be.

We can not afford to isolate HIV infected children in our homes. Instead we should give them room to associate with other people in the house.

It is important that we make children understand that Aids can’t be spread by playing with an HIV/Aids infected person.

Instead of discriminating them, children should be taught how to associate with the infected children with out getting infected.

Using sharp objects should be discouraged. Young people should be advised to abstain from sex until marriage.

Infected children need enough care to grow strong and healthy. They should be given a balanced diet to replace all the food they mighty be lacking in their bodies.

Being infected does not mean end of life, HIV infected children have a right to education and all other child rights any child may need.

Stop handling HIV/Aids infected children as if they have no value. They are children like others.
