Earlier NSS has successfully completed HIV/AIDS Prevention Programme by NACO Govt. of India for a period of ten years 2000 to 2009, in this we have reduced the presence of HIV by adopting different strategies like condom promotion, behavior change, health access. In condom promotion we are first place in entire state. Keeping all this in mind, NSS has come across many people among the target population who are suffering from diabetic disorder.


Hence we interacted with stakeholders and others, we observed the need of adopt this area to address this problem. NSS made a survey in this context with diabetic patients and pre-diabetics.
