The realisation that we are not alone in this journey towards an AIDS-free India is what keeps us going. Collaboration is when a group of people & organisations come together and contribute for the benefit of a shared objective and we strongly feel that to end AIDS in India it is important to collaborate with local communities and grassroots to accelerate the response to the HIV epidemic.
Some of the key collaborators in the campaign are
Frontline AIDS, UK:
Frontline AIDS is a global partnership of nationally based governmental and non-governmental organizations which support community organizations which promote HIV/AIDS issues in developing countries. Set up in 1993 to work with community groups in the countries most affected by the global AIDS epidemic and looking for innovative ways to break down the barriers that marginalise people living with, or at risk of acquiring, HIV. All with one goal in mind – a future free from AIDS for everyone, everywhere.
A health and development organization based in Secunderabad (Telangana), LEPRA Society is dedicated to restoring health, hope and dignity of people affected by leprosy, tuberculosis, malaria, HIV/AIDS, blindness and other health conditions exacerbated by stigma and social discrimination.
