Tamil Nadu is one of the mostly HIV AIDS affected states in India. Being the 7th populous Indian state, the place has got high rate of HIV incidence.This has  led to the setting up of an anti-AIDS society and a safe-sex campaign focusing on prevention of HIV by the government. To help tackle the AIDS problem in our local villages, RPI has started HIV awareness programs, which have been well-attended.
