Over the past decade (2000–11), India has achieved dramatic successes in reversing the HIV epidemic. These successes are largely due to the implementation of upscaled HIV-prevention interventions by the National AIDS Control Organization, two other donors, and nongovernmental organizations, under the National AIDS Control Program III. As the epidemic in India is concentrated in vulnerable subpopulations, these interventions were focused on high-risk groups. It is important to understand the lessons learned from the implementation of HIV-prevention programs and the vulnerabilities that need to be addressed to reach the goal of zero new infections. To support this understanding, the Population Council and its Knowledge Network Project partners have been documenting and disseminating evidence-based lessons from upscaled HIV-prevention programs in India. As part of this initiative, selected peer-reviewed journal publications from the Knowledge Network Project have been compiled into “Documentation of HIV Prevention Research and Programmatic Learnings from India,” Volume 1. This reference tool can help guide policymakers, program managers, and field teams in different states of India in the design and implementation of HIV-prevention programs.
