We have been executing AIDS Intervention Project since the inception in Nagapattinam district. This is Targeted Intervention Programme which is promoted by ASSET.
The AIDS Intervention Project is taught throughout the year in collaboration with local community organizations throughout Sirkazhi and surrounding villages. It is our hope is that through education the community can understand the reality of HIV/AIDS. Our instructors are both passionate about public health and dedicated to the cause of fighting the spread of HIV.
We teach the basic scientific facts of HIV biology, HIV transmission, and how transmission can be prevented. We also teach about the progression of an HIV infection in the body, and why the immune system is so important for human health. We use a scientific approach to teaching about HIV in order to dispel the myths and stigma surrounding the virus.
