"The International HIV/AIDS Alliance initiated partnerships in India in 1999 with the establishment of a country office in Delhi. In 2000, the Alliance and its Linking Organisations (referred to as Lead Partners (LPs) in India), started the home and community-based care and support programme, with financial support from the European Union and the Abbott Fund Step Forward Program. The programme was the first of the its kind in India to mobilise and provide innovative, effective and low-cost care and support to people living with HIV/AIDS and their families in 3 states- Andhra Pradesh, Tamil Nadu and Delhi. In 2002 and 2003, the Alliance initiated two focussed prevention programmes- the Frontiers Prevention Programme (FPP) and Avahan (India AIDS Initiative)-in Andhra Pradesh with support from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. The programme is being implemented and managed by the Alliance’s Andhra Pradesh office in close collaboration with the Andhra Pradesh State AIDS Control Society. A pilot programme in Manipur state to implement care and support and improve access to treatment for injection drug users and PLHA was started in 2004. In early 2006, the Alliance initiated new partnerships in Punjab state with additional programming focus on women and HIV/AIDS, supported by DFID."
