Elements of protection
Historical reference: On June 1981 American scientists informed about the first clinical case of the decease that later was called the acquired immune deficiency syndrome (AIDS). In 1983 they found out the cause of the decease — human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). 30 years later the epidemic of AIDS has spread all over the world. More than 60 million people were infected with HIV.
As on March 1, 2011 in the Republic of Belarus they recorded 11929 HIV cases, among them children — 194 cases.
A special cancellation on FDC will be carried out at the Main Post Office of Minsk on the stamp issuing day.
