HIV & AIDS
Technical Support Unit
SPYM functions as the Technical Support Unit (TSU) of the National Control AIDS Organization (NACO), Government of India. The objective is to extend technical assistance in specified areas to the State AIDS Control Societies of Punjab, Chandigarh, Haryana, Kerala and West Bengal. The overall aim is to ensure the achievement of NACP goals and objectives.
Targeted Intervention Sites
SPYM, with the support of the Delhi State AIDS Control Society (DSACS), runs Targeted Intervention (TI) projects for Injecting Drug Users and Long Distance Truck Drivers.
The twin objectives of the program are
- Preventing the spread of HIV by slowing down the spread of STIs among the vulnerable key populations
- Providing care and support to the infected and affected population, thereby reducing the impact of HIV and AIDS both socially and economically.
We are running 1 OST centre in Delhi in collaboration with NDDTC, AIIMS. The centre is effective in substantially reducing drug use, HIV risk behaviour, death from overdose and criminal activity, and financial and other hardships faced by drug users and their families.
Protocols prescribed by National AIDS Control Organisation, Ministry of Health & Family Welfare are strictly adhered to at these centres
