AeA works in partnership with Dhara Sansthan on the issue of HIV/AIDS. It supports AeA in implementing the UNDP - NACO Link Worker Scheme in 600 villages in Barmer district of Rajasthan. The programme targets the rural population and works intensively with community through a cadre of village level link workers who identify the population/households vulnerable to HIV/AIDS at the village level and reduce their risk of acquiring the virus through an array of Behaviour Change Communication Services. The programme follows a comprehensive approach targeting all sections of the community (FSWs, Intravenous Drug Users, truckers, migrants, youth and general population).
