The country has witnessed a 56 per cent drop in HIV related cases in the last one decade.
"This has been possible due to political support at the highest levels to the various interventions under National AIDS Control Programme, including from Parliamentarians and elected leaders at the State and Local Levels and cooperation received from NGOs, civil society etc," Health and Family Welfare Minister Ghulam Nabi Azad said.
