OISCA IDU Suraksha Project & OISCA Migrant Suraksha Project

OISCA South India is implementing   IDU and Migrants Suraksha Projects with the financial and technical support of Kerala State AIDS Control Society's (KSACS) HIV intervention program among the injection Drug Users (IDUs) and Migrants especially labours, drivers etc. in Calicut district. Injection Drug Users are highly vulnerable to blood born infections, particularly HIV, HCV and HBV. National HIV sentinel surveillance study among the IDU's in Calicut showed the HIV prevalence among them getting doubled into 6.2% in just one year. On the other hand Migrants are more dangerous as they will be the easy prey to this dreaded decease.
