“Hate the Disease Not the Diseased” – World AIDS Day- 01 December 2022

Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome (AIDS) is a chronic, potentially life-threatening condition caused by the Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV). By damaging the human immune system, HIV interferes with the body’s ability to fight infection and disease.

HIV is a Sexually Transmitted Infection (STI). It can also be spread by contact with infected blood and from illicit injection drug use or sharing needles. It can also be spread from mother to child during pregnancy, childbirth or breastfeeding.

We are aware that in our country, due to many cultural and social stigmas talking about sex is tabooed. Everyone hesitates to talk about this in public and even forbids its discussion at all levels. But the clear, transparent knowledge of this is essential for one and all as the spreading of AIDS, the most dreaded disease, is directly or indirectly connected to unnatural and illegitimate aspect it.

With a clear and coherent view of spreading this message and knowledge as well among the children and all others connected with our school, our Department of Science has organized many a program in our school.

On 30 November 2022, the students of class 10 exhibited a number of charts that depicted everything that is to be known by each and every one about AIDS. These charts were so well prepared that by just looking at them and reading them everyone can understand with ease the form, cause and prevention of this cureless disease.

The talent of the children in making these colorful and imaginative charts which attracted many to them and made them pay attention to the message they are intended to spread is certainly praise worthy. These students even explained everything about AIDS so well with clarity and coherence overcoming the taboos and stigmas. This indeed is the need of the hour.

On 01 December 2022, an awareness program was arranged in the school premises to commensurate with the World AIDS Day in our school auditorium at 06.00 p.m. Three eminent doctors who have been associated with the AIDS Prevention Program of the Government, working at the District Head Quarters Hospital, MGM, Dr. Lohitha, Dr. Navya and Dr. Sai Krishna took part in this program. They imparted so much knowledge about everything one has to know about this fatal disease.  The benefit our children reaped from this program is boundless. The Interactive Session that followed between these eminent doctors and the students proved to be very informative, educative and path defining for one and all.

The children of class 9 had performed a skit bringing out the message ‘Hate the Disease Not the Diseased’ Which was very informative and educative despite its heavy theme.

Dr.G.Bharadwaja Naidu, in his address reiterated the fact that “It is time, we all realized that spreading the knowledge and awareness is the best tool to prevent this deadly disease. Above all we all must accept and practice the motto of this effort and program ‘Hate the Disease Not the Diseased’

Our Director, Dr. Bharadwaja Naidu, Sri. A. Prabhu Kumar, the Chief Executive Officer, Sri. T. Pavan Kumar, the Administrative Principal, the teachers from the Greenwood Science and other Departments and many members of the support staff took active part in this program.
