Along with the mortality rate commonly associated with HIV, patients often suffer social stigma in the form of ostracism, rejection, discrimination and avoidance by the very communities that they live in. In order to mitigate the social stigma and to identify and assist HIV positive members of the local community, JSPL Foundation often undertakes HIV screening and awareness camps. Till date more than 3.6 lakhs people have been screened voluntarily through the Integrated Counselling and Testing Centres (ICTC), operational at business locations based on NACO guidelines.

While qualified and efficient healthcare benefits the local communities within which JSPL Foundation operates, as the adage goes – prevention is better than cure. In its mission to improve the physical and mental well-being of the local communities, the Foundation tackles this issue not just on the curative front, but also takes preventive steps to curb the spread of disease and stigma associated with certain diseases. These preventive steps largely fall within two categories, viz. - awareness campaigns and screening.

JSPL Foundation has been actively propagating on the ground the practice of 'Know AIDS , No AIDS' and has been putting in all effort to sensitize the community, especially migrant populations, about preventive measures to protect themselves from the risk of infection. Besides, the Foundation counsels the community to go for voluntary testing of HIV & AIDS. To bring about behaviour change, awareness generation activities like interpersonal communication, street plays, skits are conducted.
