ILFS Education handholds with NACO to spread awareness about HIV and AIDS
NACO has signed IL&FS as a Sub-Recipient (SR) for a pilot Link Workers Scheme (LWS) to spread knowledge and awareness about HIV/AIDS at the state level. Under this initiative also aims to raise a cadre of dedicated health workers which will particularly serve in the AIDS prevalent states.
IL&FS Education is also working with NACO on a Smart (chip) Card project. This Smart Card helps people living with HIV/AIDS to be mobile and still have access to the same quality of treatment and care at Anti-Retroviral Treatment (ART) centres in initially 7 states across the country, as treatment data is recorded on microchips embedded on these cards.
IL&FS Education is also playing a significant role in managing and supervising the issue of these cards to People Living with HIV/AIDS (PLHAs) in seven high prevalent states in India.
