HC Deb 14 November 1988 vol 140 c368W
82. Mr. Hayes

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what is his policy towards the inclusion of AIDS education in family planning programmes supported by the overseas aid budget.

Mr. Chris Patten

We believe information on AIDS and its prevention should be available throughout the health care system. In collaboration with the World Health Organisation's global programme on AIDS and other donors we are encouraging countries to adopt this integrated approach. We are giving £1.6 million to the International Planned Parenthood Federation to develop specific AIDS-related strategies including information and education services for family planning workers and their clients.
