Vihaan (meaning dawn in Hindi) programme enhances treatment adherence and retention in HIV care for People Living with HIV (PLHIV) in India. The programme serves nearly 1.4 million PLHIV through its 319 Care and Support Centers spread across 28 states and 4 union territories in India. The first phase of the programme was launched in 2013 with support from the Global Fund to fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria. Presently, it is in its third phase of the implementation.
We are proud to complement the country’s HIV response as Care and Support component of the national programme providing comprehensive care and support services to people living with HIV. The programme was implemented in a phased manner. In each phase, the implementing strategies evolved and improved to address the needs on the ground much more efficiently. In 2015, during the second phase, the programme services were expanded to integrate HIV-TB into CSC activities. In 2017, the number of CSCs were gradually downsized from 350 to 310 CSCs that still cover all ARTs linked previously.
The Vihaan consortium is led by Alliance India and 17 state-level PLHIV networks and NGOs that in turn partner with district-level PLHIV networks and other organisations to deliver care & support services in communities.
