ACTION AGAINST AIDS/HIV IN THE YARD OF THE UNIVERSITY
ACTION AGAINST AIDS/HIV IN THE YARD OF THE UNIVERSITY
Part of the participants of the social surway at the territory of YSU has got an opinion that "HIV is some organization".

An event-action was organized in the yard of the central building of YSU on the 12th of December dedicated to the struggle against AIDS/HIV. The event was organized within the framework of grant program by the initiative of the students of the Faculty of Sociology of YSU, supported by the Student Council of this Faculty.

We expected that the greater part of the people would just come to listen to the music and for hospitality, so it was not a sensation for us. Anyway, each of them heard about this devastating virus one more time. The problem is very vital and urgent, and we do our best to make our society informed on this matter, - said coordinator of this action, a student of the above mentioned faculty Varouzhan Sahakyan.

1000 students participated in this questioning during this event, held by the students of this faculty. Their goal was to find out how much our youth is informed on this subject via questions mentioned in the interrogatory.

According to the results of the survey, realized by me, 8 of 36 participants had no idea of HIV. But we can say for sure that positive results are expected from this action: all the participants of the questioning read the information written in the booklets which were distributed beforehand, - informed us Tatev Karapetyan, a student who coordinated the questioning process.

Varouzhan Sahakyan said that this event is just the part of the big action. The informational activities will go on, the social advertisement will be prepared and the results of this surway will be published in the nearest future.
