Awareness campaign for nomads

The Tribal Research and Cultural Foundation, an organisation working for tribes and nomadic communities, has launched a fourfold programme to spread awareness among these groups regarding deadly diseases and sexually transmitted infections. Though the tribal Gujjars constitute 20 to 25 per cent population of the state, they have negligible access to modern health-care facilities, said Dr Javaid Rahi, national secretary of the Tribal Foundation.
