Pakistan turns to WHO to investigate major HIV outbreak

May 29, 2019 16:10 IST

The Pakistan government has sought the help of the World Health Organisation (WHO) to probe the recent outbreak of HIV in the Sindh province, that is known to have affected over 600 people, according to a PTI report. Health officials have attributed the spread of HIV to the use of infected syringes and unsafe blood transfusion by quack doctors. A 10-member rapid response team from the WHO and Centres for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) will be investigating the exact reason for the outbreak of the disease.
