The number of AIDS patients is rising day by day with about 34 million people affected worldwide (at the end of 2010). From the detection this mysterious illness for the first time in 1986 at Chennai, the HIV infection has been growing very fast in India (2.4 million people affected as on 2009) with Maharashtra, Tamil Nadu, Karnataka, Andhra Pradesh, Manipur and Nagaland being the high prevalence states. Jharkhand is a low prevalence state but it is being considered as highly vulnerable state with 7295 patients (as on Dec. 2010). The prevalence rate of HIV/AIDS has declined in Jharkhand from 0.31% to 0.13% which is less than the national figure of 0.31%, according to data of the UNICEF. In Jharkhand, there are 23,000 cases in which 12,000 have been identified and the rest are unaware of their status. Integrated Counselling and Testing Centre (ICTC) is an entry point to care and support services, which provides people with an opportunity to learn and accept their HIV serostatus in a confidential environment. Out of 64 ICTC are situated in Jharkhand state of which six are in Ranchi district.
