Our work in India started a decade ago with the purpose of developing a model HIV-prevention program. Since then, our work has expanded to include maternal and child health, health and nutrition services, vaccines and routine immunization, family planning, agricultural development, sanitation, control of infectious diseases, and financial inclusion. Together with our partners, we deliver results none of us could achieve by acting alone.
