World Aids Day
World Aids Day In a small town in Pakistan, 900 children were found to be HIV positive. Even more interesting was the fact that these children, most of whom were under 12 years of age, had no history of the disease in their families as this number made history as the largest HIV-positive epidemic among children in the country and across the Asian continent.
In fact, the first signs of the outbreak were revealed to a doctor’s attention in April. The doctor, who began to suspect some of the symptoms of the disease he saw in the children who came to his clinic, asked the children to be tested for HIV. Then, in just 8 days, 900 children were HIV-positive in 1,000 people.
At the center of the debate about HIV-positive cases is Doctor Muzaffer Gangro, who works in a small health care facility in Ratodera.
Doctor at the center of the controversy: they envy my popularity.
Dr. Gangro was a popular doctor here. But after he was taken into custody, his life changed, as did the HIV-positive children. Because he’s accused of deliberately infecting children with HIV.
Gangro, who was detained on suspicion of murder, said: “I did nothing wrong. There is a lot of pressure on the health department officials. They were looking for a scapegoat to cover up their inadequacy. They found me.”
Following a joint investigation by the World Health Organisation and the government, the degree of charges against the doctor was reduced to a ‘crime of negligence’. The doctor, who was also HIV positive, was later released on bail.
According to Gangro, these charges are fabricated: “I have been a doctor for 10 years. There is not a single complaint that I have injected with used syringes. Doctors and journalists jealous of my popularity are slandering.”
