About Us
Uttarakhand was formed in 09 November, 2000 as twenty seventh state of India. Not only It is known for its natural beauty but also it is proceeding ahead quickly day by day since its establishment. But the state could not be secure from HIV/AIDS. The reason is that it is based upon Money Order Economy. NACO had established Uttarakhand State AIDS Control Society in 2001 perceiving this severe fact. Society is doing its arduous efforts for making the state HIV/AIDS free through institutional efforts of its divisions.

Mobility and migration of people make them more vulnerable, as a result of separation from spouse and release of social sanctions, leading to high-risk sexual practices and consequently they may contract HIV, which in turn is carried to their spouses and to their children. On the one hand, with an increase in urbanization most of the societies are in transition and the young population is under less social restraint. On the other hand, lower literacy level of rural women, especially in the state and local customs & traditions make women more vulnerable to the infection. Large numbers of women suffer from reproductive tract infections (RTIs), which are mainly due to poor sexual hygiene especially during menstruation and sexually transmitted infections from their spouses.
