Thailand, the 1st of December 2009 [Pattaya Daily News]: World AIDS Day has been rightly acknowledged by various rural prvinces in Thailand who have helped to educate the local communities of the risk involved with contracting the HIV virus as well as informing them of ways in which they can prevent the spread. The key issue put across to the public has been the practicing of safe sex between couples.

In Si Sa Ket a North Eastern province, bordering Cambodia, local authorities and the private sector with the help of local school students held activities in a pedestrian street and the city train station to educate the public on reducing new HIV infections, and discrimination against existing patients.

In Uttaradit, a Northern Thai province bordering Laos, more than 1,000 students and volunteers visited villagers by bicycle in order to educate the locals about HIV, with a campaign that is set to run throughout the month of December.

Further to the provincial activities the Thailand National Health Security Office have announced that they will adjust the anti-viral drug formula for HIV patients, following new World Health Organization (WHO) guidelines advising all countries to develop a plan to phase out the use of earlier medications, due to high frequencies of toxicities that occur, such as fat loss. About 120,000 HIV patients are currently receiving anti-viral drugs from the office and the number is expected to rise to 138,000 in 2010 and 150,000 in 2011.
