Initiative: Virtual drop-in center
Organisation: Deepshikha Samiti
Country: India

Deepshikha Samiti has been working at the grassroots level since 1994 in Delhi and other states for socio-economic development of urban and rural areas. They have worked with the poor and marginalized sections in the field of justice, human rights, health, HIV AIDS employment and participation in governance. Development programs are based on the needs of people with an effort to mobilize participation for community development. The HIV epidemic in India is driven by sexual transmission, which accounted for 86% of new infection. To address invisible and hard to reach high-risk populations (Female Sex Worker/Male Having Sex with Male/Transgender) an innovative web-based communication strategy called safelovers is used to identify and link the virtual network with the service provisions.
