The Ministry of Health, in cooperation with Unicef, has launched the “All Together” initiative to prevent the spread of HIV/Aids among young people in the UAE.

The initiative targets people between 16 and 24 and aims to educate them about the risks of HIV/Aids and how to protect against the disease.

The MoH announced the awareness campaign would be rolled out in all UAE universities in the near future.

Dr Hussein Abdulrahman Al Rand, undersecretary for health centres and clinics, told Al Ittihad, the Arabic language sister paper of The National, that the number of HIV/AIDS among young people in the UAE is significantly low.
