What is the Project About

What is the project about

In partnership with the National AIDS Control Organisation (NACO), the project aims to expand coverage and impact of the national HIV response by mainstreaming HIV in selected ministries; to enhance capacities of civil society groups to protect human rights of PLHIVs and of government officials to effectively manage National AIDS Control Programme (NACP-III).

What Have We Accomplished So Far

What have we accomplished so far
  • Nineteen government social protection schemes have been amended and 41 directives by the State Council on AIDS have enabled social protection of marginalized groups

  • HIV services have reached two million high risk and vulnerable people with the help of district outreach workers and functionaries. Over 400,000 women and men between the ages of 15 and 49 have been tested for HIV

  • Improved access to justice for PLHIVs through training of 2,000 paralegal workers

  • Twenty-nine PLHIV networks have been set up or strengthened through mobilization, capacity and institutional development

  • Significant contributions made to NACP-III in areas of mainstreaming, migration, community care centres, stigma, greater involvement of people living with AIDS and gender sensitivity

  • Strategic advocacy for transgenders has resulted in the inclusion of a separate category for transgenders in the 2011 census. An Election Commission directive has also enabled transgenders to vote under a separate gender category – ‘others’

  • The new government methodology to estimate below poverty line populations has a secondary category for PLHIVs and transgenders

  • Strengthened evidence base of development planners through 47 knowledge products and 51 capacity building tools
