AIDS Project Underway in Armenia

YEREVAN (Noyan Tapan)–The presentation of the UN AIDS Project took place in Yerevan on August 5. The Project aims at providing assistance to the AIDS Program of Armenia in order to form a National Strategic Plan in response to the HIV/AIDS

The project mainly focuses on preventing HIV among the youth. Research will also be conducted on drug users and the virus and also on how knowledge and attitude–affects the youth. The total cost of the Project is $32,500.

Interviewers drew Project Expert Andrew Amanto-Gauci’s attention to the fact that the situation with those infected with the AIDS virus has drastically changed because they are seeking treatment in Armenia. The medicine named Armenicum was invented by Armenian scientists and is claimed to be an effective remedy for the AIDS virus. The expert expressed interest in the effects of the medication but had not visited patients that are undergoing treatment with Armenicum–or been provided with any data. The World Health Organization will consider AIDS to be beyond cure as long as official data is unavailable.
