Abstract

India has the second-largest population living with HIV/AIDS in the world. Although the exact number of HIV positive people is contested, it is predicted that the current numbers are likely to grow at a rapid rate in the next decade if the epidemic goes unchecked. This paper explores the HIV/AIDS epidemic in India through the perspective of two non-governmental organisations (NGOs) whose roles have become critical in the fight against the disease. Specifically, it identifies the challenges faced by these NGOs such as lack of government responsiveness, funding-related problems, corruption, donor accountability, and cultural attitudes to HIV/AIDS, while exploring the theoretical implications of NGOs playing a greater role in providing programming and services to those living with, and affected by, the epidemic.
