Until a more serious look is taken to the creation of "POSITIVE AWARENESS" on AIDS to the rural dwellers "AIDS PREVENTION" and more importantly, A MECHANISM TO "SUPERVISE" FUNDS "PUMPED" FOR THE SAKE OF AIDS EDUCATION, the rate of increase in resource would be at par with the rate of increase in new Aids Cases. This sterm from the fact that about 90% of the Education ON AIDS is done in the Urban Centres with the rural areas almost neglected. Meanwhile, many rural people disbelieve the existence of AIDS, even the few who do believe in the existence of AIDS, do not believe in the mode of its spread, kinds of prevention and at times are confused by taboos and certain backward spiritual believes. The greatest danger is the lack of effective primary health care deliver and Family Planning methods in these rural areas. When there is no effective supervisory mechanism to keep a link between the Urban and Rural Areas as far as sex education and its compliance to an extent are concerned. The rural areas are noted for poor nutrition, lack of proper care for the children and lack of proper control over the youth about the dos and don'ts of the society. The high rate of "teenage Pregnancy" in these areas is a result of the above. A hungry, Uncontrolled, Unprotected child could fall a victim to STD/AIDS, STD/AIDS is an economic problem as well. DEFINITELY, THE TIME TO ACT IS NOW, BEFORE THE FEW DONOR ORGANIZATIONS COME TO REALIZE THAT THEIR EFFORTS MIGHT NOT YIELD THE EXPECTED RESULTS AFTER ALL. IN WHICH CASE ONE COULD DESCRIBE AS A LICENSE FOR MAN'S EXTENSION.
