The Eleventh Five Year Plan of the Government of India lays specific emphasis on the process of inclusion as the foundation for development in India. Stress is on to involve and integrate the most marginalized and weakest sections of population, the most voiceless groups, within development. In this context, the NACP has set out to ensure, through different strategies, that PLHIV and other affected groups are included as partners in the various stages of the program implementation.
The NACO Technical Estimate Report (2015) estimated that out of 29 million annual pregnancies in India, 35,255 occur in HIV positive pregnant women. In the absence of any intervention, an estimated (2015) cohort of 10,361 infected babies will be born annually. The PPTCT programme aims to prevent the perinatal transmission of HIV from an HIV infected pregnant mother to her newborn baby. The programme entails counselling and testing of pregnant women in the ICTCs.

Despite this significant progress, the number of children becoming newly infected with HIV remains unacceptably high. In 2016, 24% of pregnant women living with HIV did not have access to ARVs to prevent transmission to their infants.3 In the same year, around 160,000 children became infected with HIV; this equates to 438 children a day.4

Taal is a community pharmacy run and supported by the people within the HIV community, in partnership with the CSR arm of drug company Emcure. TAAL is Treatment, Advocacy, Adherence, Literacy. The first Taal Pharmacy was established in Pune in 2006. Today, Taal is functioning in seven districts of Maharashtra, providing medicines, and psycho-social support and information related to ART adherence. Over 3,200 people have received medicines and
over 500 have been referred to government schemes.
