Over the past decade, India has made significant progress in tackling its HIV epidemic, especially in comparison with other countries in the region. A major reason for this success is the sustained commitment of the Indian Government through its National AIDS Control Programme, which has been particularly effective at targeting high-risk groups and grass-root NGOs.
Stigma and discrimination remain significant barriers of preventing key affected populations and those at high risk of HIV transmission from accessing treatment and vital healthcare services. There is also a need to strengthen the link between testing and treatment to ensure those with a diagnosis are able to access the quality and timely care.
NMCT has implemented the project LIFE in Tirupur District, covering 13 blocks with the support of Karl Kuebel Stiftung, Germany to give Care & Support to the PLHIVs/CLHIVs. The project aims at providing better quality of life through Participation, access to Prevention, Treatment, Care and Education to PLHIVs, families affected by HIV/AIDS and Female Sex Workers, Male sex workers and Transgender.
