Abstract

"HIV/AIDS is not only a biomedical phenomenon but also a social reality. Despite the fact that the Indian government recognized the potentially far-reaching impacts of the disease as early as 1985, respondents in this study concluded that India’s level of political commitment for dealing with the epidemic remains low and sporadic. Top national leaders have made statements on several occasions but, until recently, have failed to translate those statements into a pragmatic policy or initiative."
