Ethiopia's AIDS Hotline Ringing Off the Hook

Thousands of Ethiopians are taking advantage of a new toll-free telephone hotline to educate themselves about the dangers of HIV and Aids, how to avoid getting it and how to treat it, officials said on Thursday.

The service, known as "Wegen AIDS Talkline," has been accessible to telephone users at no charge since last week and has been receiving between 1 800 and 2 200 calls per day, the officials said.
