India is sitting on an HIV/AIDS “time-bomb” and the epidemic could soon become like it in Africa unless immediate steps are taken to accelerate efforts to stem it. This is the warning from the head of an international survey agency. “HIV/AIDS deadly disease in India is extremely grave. It is ticking time bomb. The epidemic is rising rapidly and could soon get out of control, unless the response was scaled up massively.”

The catastrophic situation being faced in Botswana and other parts of Southern Africa “is just a vision of the future” that India could face.
