Nodal Centre For AIDS

HIV/AIDS was a socio-economic threat looming over the National scenario in early 1990s. In 1992, the senior management of Tata Steel Ltd. established Nodal Centre for AIDS in Tata Main Hospital with the aim of preventing the spread of HIV/AIDS through raising awareness amongst the public in HIV/AIDS and STI as well as to provide clinical care and counselling facilities for People Living with HIV/AIDS (PLWHA).

It is guided by the HIV/AIDS Policy of Tata Steel Ltd. It is also the CSR arm of Tata Main Hospital offering free services to the non-entitled HIV+ people through Sneh Kendra. The implementation of HIV/AIDS interventions by this department has been recognised at various International and National fora and has brought laurels to the Organisation.
