Today in India,there are more than 5.7 million registered HIV +ve cases as per Indian Health Dept & NACO. Maharashtra ranks fourth in the country for registered cases and Pune, within Maharashtra, ranks second.The social stigma for HIV +ve children and women is prevalent across the country.Hence these women and children,particularly from poor and rural households are turned away from their homes and families after deaths of their parent(s) / spouse.
