Nepali children, those affected by AIDS and those indirectly affected by AIDS, gathered in a forum to express their ideas through art.

Some 50 children aged between 3 to 18 participated the art competition on Monday held in Nepali capital Kathmandu to mark the 20th World AIDS Day on Dec. 1.

Children participated in the competition are not fully aware of that they are living with HIV/AIDS. Specially children of age between three-nine do not have any idea about HIV/AIDS.

According to the organizer, competition was held to support the Nepali government in achieving universal access to treatment, care and support for Children Affected by AIDS in Nepal. Organizers focus on the children and their families to prevent mother to child transmission.

According to National Center for AIDS and STD Control (NCASC), a governmental health organization, 70,000 Nepali are AIDS affected. Among which, 1800 are children and 30 percent are women.
