  • HIV/AIDS remains a major developmental challenge affecting all sectors. By the end of the year 2011, at least 36 million people worldwide were living with HIV/AIDS (UNAIDS, 2011). Positive results are beginning to be seen in India.
  • In the absence of a cure, prevention has become the principle strategy of dealing with the HIV/AIDS problem. This is done through HIV/AIDS education as a social vaccine that mainly targets children below 14 years of age.
  • A Giggles Welfare Organisation advocates for a multi-sectoral approach to dealing with the HIV/AIDS problem, efforts by the Volunteers have been noteworthy. They include: HIV/AIDS awareness program in red light areas, and education about safe practices.
