When 'prevalence' Makes for Disparity in AIDS Care

The third phase of the National AIDS Control Program (NACP), set to kick-start this month, will see care and control strategies vary widely from state to state. States// are classified as "high prevalence" and "low prevalence", based on declared numbers of the HIV/AIDS infected. But there is a difference in attitude towards AIDS control from state to state.
