THERE has been good response from residents in Mbeya region, its neighbouring areas and Tanzanians in general on the HIV/Aids campaign conducted by T-MARC for seven days leading to the climax of World Aids Day celebrated on Wednesday this week.

During the one-week exhibition held at Ruandansolwe Stadium, in Mbeya City, T-MARC conducted the campaign on HIV/Aids during which  education on how people can  protect themselves against HIV transmission and proper use of condoms was also provided. 

In their pavilion, T-MARC   provided Dume condoms and sanitary pads besides training all stakeholders on how to use and store the products until they reach consumers.
