Sharp drop in HIV cases in India

Thu 16 Aug 2012

India had witnessed a sharp decline in the number of new HIV cases — a 56 per cent drop — in the past 10 years.

This has been possible due to political support at the highest levels to the various interventions under National AIDS Control Programme, including Parliamentarians and elected leaders at the state and local levels and cooperation received from NGOs, civil society.

Government believes that the new HIV infections could be significantly reduced if effective prevention programs are expanded and reach those at greatest risk of HIV infection.
