BUCHAREST, Romania - The United Nations (news - web sites) called on Romanian authorities to help the thousands of HIV (news - web sites) infected children here attend school with other children, in a statement released Tuesday.
Less than 60 percent of Romania's 7,500 HIV infected children attend public schools, the U.N. Children's Fund said. Most of those who do go to school are able to do so only because they've kept their illness secret, the group added.
AIDS (news - web sites) groups in Romania have in the past complained about discrimination against infected students despite a law that gives them the right to study.
