The Deputy Minister was responding to the question earlier raised by a special seat Hawa Mchafu Chakoma (CCM) who wanted to know plans by the government in sensitizing youths especially males into going for the voluntary testing of the HIV/AIDS viruses whose pandemic seems to be growing at a high rate in the country. The deputy minister noted that, after the official launching of the national campaigns, then this will spread countrywide at various stations slated by the government at district and regional levels countrywide whereby testing will be done free of charge.
