The state of Andhra Pradesh with Hyderabad as its capital is second in the country for numbers affected with about 4 lakhs (400,000) affected by the disease.
HIV/AIDS affects individuals of all ages, sex and social status. This is reflected in the significant number of women and children affected by the disease in India. HIV is spreading rapidly from urban to rural areas and from high-risk groups to the general population.
The Need for Nireekshana
There is a need for a centre to reach out and care holistically to the person with AIDS in the city of Hyderabad.

The CALL is for all of us to partner in this expression of compassion, love, life and hope
