This chapter reviews India's response toits HIV epidemic. It argues that the provision of prevention and treatment services for HIV-infected people through non-government organizations (NGOs) or the private sector is not an adequate solution in the Indian context. The scale of operations required; the social, religious, economic, and geographical heterogeneity of India; and the low income of the majority of India's citizens mean that the only solution to effective prevention and treatment of HIV infection is to develop public systems linked with community support structures.
