AIDS is a global pandemic that affects 34 million people worldwide. According to United Nations programme on HIV and AIDS(UNAIDS), 3.4 million of these are less than 15 years old. Extensive labor migration, low literacy levels and lack of awareness about the disease are further exacerbating the HIV-AIDs level in India. The Government of India has also raised concerns about the role of intravenous drug use and prostitution in spreading AIDS
