Introduction to the Program

The Punjab AIDS Control Program (PACP) was established in 1998 to reverse the spread of HIV among the most at risk groups and to keep the epidemic from establishing among the bridging groups and the general population. PACP aims at creating an environment where people living with HIV can access medical and social services and enjoy life without facing stigma or discrimination by following international guidelines of UNAIDS, WHO and UNICEF.

The Punjab AIDS Control Program is the leading provincial response to HIV/AIDS epidemic in Punjab. The program operates under the umbrella of the Primary and Secondary Healthcare Department, Government of the Punjab. The objective is to prevent HIV transmissions in the population through awareness and communication and encourage more and more people to get tested and put behind the social stigmas that are attached with this disease. Through its professional counselors the program has a comfortable screening environment which is aimed at improving mental health of people coming for screening and confidentiality is strictly ensured.

The program also follows a strong mechanism to cater this infection related needs of the Most At Risk Population (MARP).
