The Objective

                                                                                                                                   This program aims to identify high-risk members of           a critical population by using peer educators and outreach workers and organizing regular meetings and health check-ups for those at risk of diseases. To reduce the transmission of HIV and other sexually transmitted infections, the organization provides medicines and promotes safe sexual practices in the project areas.

 

 Since 2008, we have been implementing HIV/AIDS, TB, and Hepatitis B-C, prevention projects in Kadiri and Penukonda mandals in the Sri Satya Sai district with support from the Andhra Pradesh State AIDS Control Society (APSACS).

 

 The spread of HIV/AIDS, TB, and Hepatitis B-C,     reduces through education and prevention, early detection, and ensuring that those who need access to treatment, safe blood, and other services can get it. By doing this, we can ensure that these diseases are dealt with more effectively and efficiently, helping those in need and ultimately creating a healthier world.

 

​Impact So far

The organization identified and treated 3812 high-risk members in 3 mandals.
