India has been working tremendously hard to eradicate HIV/AIDS which poses serious health challenges to a large population living in the country. Efforts are now being made to reduce the number of HIV cases to zero and the nation has already achieved a breakthrough to stop HIV prevalence in the last few years. India has demonstrated an overall reduction of 57% in the annual new HIV infections (among adult population) from 2.74 lakhs in 2000 to 1.16 lakhs in 2011, reflecting the impact of various interventions and scaled-up prevention strategies under the National AIDS Control Programme.
However, there is a long way to go for an "AIDS Free India" as the country still has about 2.5 million people, aged between 15 and 49, estimated to be living with HIV/AIDS, the third largest in the world.
Fully-functional, interactive Government websites can serve as virtual offices. The process to build such virtual offices is straightforward: a Government department appoints an owner for its virtual office, called Web Information Manager (WIM). WIM finalizes all policies for conduct of operations. WIM assisted by a technical team, oversees design and construction based on effective information architecture to ensure all information and services are readily available.
Celebrations become dearer when we have the wishes of our loved ones. You can share your heartfelt feelings for your family and friends with our e-cards on the occasions of Christmas and New Year.
