KATHMANDU, Feb. 16: The Ministry of Health and Population do not have any record and documentation about the budget spent to control the spread of HIV/AIDS in the country.

According to the National HIV/AIDS and Sexually Transmitted Disease Control Centre, the Ministry even does not have the data about how many donor agencies have been working in this sector and how much budget was spent for the task.

Director of the Center Dr. Ramesh Kumar Kharel shared this with lawmakers at a meeting of the Legislature-Parliament, Women, Children, and Social Welfare Committee, today and said the non-government organizations have been working without coordinating with the center.

The organizations neither inform the Ministry to this effect nor the programmes are monitored, said Dr. Kharel.

The latest data shows that out of the 55,626 HIV infected people, 18,000 of them have been suffering from the AIDS. Around 6,000 of them are receiving the Anti-Retro Viral treatment.

Dr.Kharel said the number of HIV infected population has however reduced by 25 per cent of late and said the Ministry has given priority to control the spread of the infection.

On the occasion the lawmakers suggested to run special campaign against HIV/AIDS by coordinating the organizations concerned.

Chairman of the Committee Sandhya Dev chaired the meeting.
