Medical Association of Ichalkaranji




Mai Adhar Kendra is a proud project started in 1997 by Medical Association of Ichalkaranji for the benefit of HIV/AIDS patinets.It's primary object was to work as a Counselling Centre to help & guide them.It was noticed that majority of T.B. patients have HIV in addition to T.B. & Hence they were not responding even to IInd line Anti T.B. Drugs. So we decided to start work in HIV/AIDS. That is how "MAI ADHAR KENDRA" the second proud project of Medical Association was born on Oct 1997. It is certainly going to be a real 'Adhar' & Hope Centre for the victim of AIDS.The response to Adhar Kendra was too good & in a short time we have registered more than 2000 patients till date 31/12/2010. We are proud, we have given them the moral support, scientific knowledge &  treatment and courage to face the situation.All our patients very well know that AIDS is a chronic manageable disease. We have already started free treatment to pregnant HIV+ve mothers & the new born to prevent mother to child transmission of infection.

Recently, we have started a diagnostic centre of HIV with the help from Rotary Club of Ichalkaranji, Rotary Club of Poughkeepsie (New York) Rotary International. Miss Carrol & Miss Susan, social workers & our well wishers in USA played a significant role in getting this matching grant sanctioned. Here facilities for Elisa HIV Test are available as Free to T.B. Clinic patients & at just nominal charges to other patients. This very useful project is the fruit of Rtn. Shri S.N. Agarwal- Project Director (Rotary Club of Ichalkaranji) untiring efforts & constant follow up.
