The Minister of Health has advised the HIV/AIDS Control Unit to subject detainees in all prisons in the island to an HIV/AIDS test.

This decision was taken after a report of a detainee at the Welikada prison contracting AIDS.

The Minister has instructed that discussion be held with the Prisons Department and an extensive programme be prepared in connection with this issue.

The Health Ministry says that accordingly steps will be taken within the next few days to subject the detainees in all prisons in the island to the HIV/AIDS test.
