The occurrence and spread of HIV/AIDS in our country has increased to such an alarming extent that it has almost become a national epidemic. Despite the collective efforts of the Government and several NGOs and despite the overwhelming funding being made available, there seems to be no let down. People in growing numbers– especially the youth – are turning up positive to HIV and succumbing to this scourge that is threatening to erode the very socio-economic fabric of the nation.

CFI’s response to this global pandemic has been four-fold: Awareness, Prevention, Care and Support. Our goal is to prevent the spread of HIV/AIDS through all our initiatives and mitigate its social and economic impact. To start off, we have initiated our interventions to create awareness about the prevention of HIV/AIDS among the village community, truckers, industrial migrants, fishermen, village youth and People Living with HIV and AIDS (PLWHA) in Raigad district.

Why Raigad?

Raigad district, particularly the remote and coastal areas, is a neglected geographical region from the developmental viewpoint. As such, the education level vis-à-vis awareness about HIV/AIDS was very low and the communities were largely ignored. This fact, together with the need of the people in the area, prompted us to initiate this work in Raigad district under the aegis of CFI Raigad Unit, which is situated at Pen. The project area has a typical population, which is scattered, stays in remote areas and exhibits significant in-and-out migration. All these factors worked to the advantage of the Raigad project area being selected for this particular mission.

To achieve our objective and make our work more effective, we have adopted different strategies that include -

  •    To strengthen civil society with coordination of local partners
  •    Partnership with government department and others
  •    Behavior change communication
  •    Information, Education and Communication material distribution
  •    Care and support – Helping life better for PLWHA
  •    Availability of basic health services in the villages
