Opposition leader Aung San Suu Kyi called for an end to discrimination against HIV patients during the celebration of World AIDS Day on December 1 held at the headquarters of the National League for Democracy Party in Yangon.
Suu Kyi said discriminating against an HIV patient affects not only the victims, but also the human dignity of the doer. She urged that people with HIV/AIDS should not be treated as outcasts in a civilised community, adding that health education is necessary in preventing the spread of the disease.
She was appointed as the UNAIDS ambassador on November 20.
