Jeevan Sahara Kendra

Jeevan Sahara Kendra is an HIV/AIDS care project started in August 2002 in Thane, India. This name literally means "Life Help Centre" in the Hindi language. The HIV epidemic in India is staggering; Bombay alone has over 250,000 people with HIV by conservative estimates.
Jeevan Sahara Kendra's vision is to bring hope and healing to critically ill people suffering from HIV/AIDS. Jeevan Sahara Kendra provides care to people with HIV/AIDS through personal counseling, rational medical help, and compassionate palliative care. It is currently focused on developing a network to care for people with HIV/AIDS in their own homes. At the same time, Jeevan Sahara Kendra is in the process of developing plans for a support institution to provide clinical and palliative care.

Counseling for people suspected or known to have HIV/AIDS
