The Uttarakhand State AIDS Control Society (USACS) has now decided to provide medicines even to those HIV positive patients who are not undergoing antiretroviral therapy (ART)

Gagan Luthra, who is a project officer with USACS, said, “Both these initiatives are equally important. In majority of the cases, HIV positive patients are abandoned by their families. Some of the poor patients suffer from poverty and hunger which deteriorates their health. The food security provided to them will ensure that they do not suffer due to hunger.”
