In order to control the spread of HIV/AIDS, the Government of India is implementing the National AIDS Control Programme (NACP) as a 100% centrally sponsored scheme. The first National AIDS Control Programme was launched in 1992, followed by NACP-II in 1999. Phase III of NACP, launched in July 2007, had the goal to halt and reverse the epidemic in the country over the five year period (2007-2012) by scaling up prevention efforts among High Risk Groups (HRG) and general population, and integrating them with Care, Support & Treatment services. Prevention and Care, Support & Treatment (CST) form the two key pillars of all HIV/AIDS control efforts in India. The programme succeeded in reducing the number of annual new HIV infections in adults by 57% between 2000 and 2011 through scaled up prevention activities. Wider access to Anti-Retroviral Treatment has resulted in a decline of the estimated number of people dying due to AIDS related causes.
