Sixty Pattaya village health volunteers learned how to better care for people stricken with HIV and AIDS at a Sriracha hospice.

Deputy Mayor Manote Nongyai opened the Feb. 22-22 training for volunteers from Pattaya’s 42 communities and city social workers at the Yatang Homestay.

Training emphasized Pattaya’s campaign to reduce risky sexual behavior, increase disease control and promote free blood tests for people in at-risk groups.

The care for those already infected covered support networks, data collection and coordination and problem-solving to allow AIDS patients to live normally in their neighborhoods. (PCPR)
