The individual efforts of Dr. Vinay and Dr. Sanjeevani Kulkarni around the issue of HIV/AIDS started in 1986. Prayas Health Group was formally launched in 1994 as an organization working in the field of HIV/AIDS. We work with children, adolescents as well as adults including pregnant women with HIV/AIDS belonging to all strata of society. The first HIV-infected person was treated at our clinic in 1989. We have been witness to the history and evolution of the HIV epidemic in India since beginning. As the epidemic unfolded, activities like awareness-building, interventions for prevention, research, advocacy, and training were initiated to address various aspects of HIV.
