Congratulations to NAPS

first_imgDear Editor,On Saturday, November 25, 2017, I saw a large contingent of Guyanese and a few foreigners who took to the streets of Georgetown for the annual AIDS awareness walk. Interestingly, there was little or no hype about this activity and, yet, it attracted a large turnout.There was no senior functionary of the Public Health Ministry to demonstrate strong political will and leadership, especially to those who are living with the deadly virus which was detected in Guyana for the first time in 1987.The national AIDS Programme must be commended for a great job well done to bring people from all walks of life to make this event a successful one and it was great to see members of the LGBTI community and Persons Living with AIDS contributing to the large attendance without the politicians.Congratulations to the NAPS for a job well done.Sincerely,Brian Singhlast_img read more
