  • Descrição: The Avahan HIV prevention initiative is a major effort funded by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation that aims to reduce HIV transmission in the general population by focusing HIV prevention efforts on female sex workers and their clients, men who have sex with men, truck drivers and injecting drug users who are at high risk of getting HIV [1]. Avahan has been implemented in six states of India since 2003 that have had a high HIV burden – four large states in southern India (Andhra Pradesh, Karnataka, Maharashtra, and Tamil Nadu) and two small states in northeast India (Manipur and Nagaland) through 134 local non-governmental organizations [2]. It is important to note that Avahan, while unique and substantial, complements the much larger national HIV prevention effort in India.
