While the following news coverage is all in Hindi, it translates to a recognition of our work along with partner JJHSS in Madhya Pradesh, to raise awareness about and to prevent and treat HIV/AIDS in Jhabua. We’ve been getting phone calls all week from across the states from people who were shocked to hear our stats – that 197 HIV+ people have been identified so far in Jhabua. People are stunned to learn that HIV is affecting rural India and not just the cities. Hopefully by raising visibility of HIV in rural areas of India, people here will be more cautious and aware of the dangers of the disease.
