Care & Support Services for PLHIVs

Since PLHIVs are among the most vulnerable of patient categories, it has been FXBIS’ endeavor to reach out to as many for medical and socio-economic assistance. Through health programmes, FXBIS improves the survival rate and quality of life of people affected by HIV/AIDS. In addition to community mobilization and targeted interventions, the organization has been undertaking a viral load testing initiative project and has initiated the VIHAAN program (meaning ‘dawn’s first light’ in Sanskrit), the largest direct service program for people living with HIV in India.

Targetted Intervention for MSMs was another project being run by FXBIS in the NE, through which the organization aimed at training MSMs to be community counselors advocating prevention of AIDS as well as enabling the PLHIVs to avail ART.
