Community Health

Rural areas in Maharashtra can be particularly vulnerable to HIV/AIDS due to potentially large migratory workforces because of the industry in the region, and the major road transport routes traversing the state.

These particular HIV/AIDS programmes began in 2004 and are designed to provide both preventive and curative services with the aim of disease prevention and eradication in the long term. Approximately 1,700 HIV-positive people are registered with these programmes.


AidsArk helps the poorest people living with HIV in the developing world by providing anti-retroviral drugs and related medical and social care so they can live a normal life.

Sadly, HIV/AIDS is not a problem that has been solved. By 2019, globally 38 million people were living with HIV. Of these, only 23 million were able to access anti-retroviral treatment. That same year, 1.7 million people became newly infected with HIV, while 770,000 people died from AIDS-related causes.

AidsArk works with doctors and clinics in the poorest parts of the developing world to try and improve each of these statistics.
