1 DECEMBER 2010 | Kabul, AFGHANISTAN - On World AIDS Day, government health officials, the United Nations and its partners identify priority measures needed to tackle the increasing public health concern that HIV/AIDS poses in Afghanistan.

Other marginalized groups such as prisoners and migrants or displaced people are also vulnerable to the risk of infection with HIV.
