Targeted Intervention Programme (Truckers) in Ghaziabad City Under UPSACS

Targeted intervention for Truckers is also running by “GRAMMEN VIKAS SANSTHA” at Ghaziabad since 2013. This program is aimed at offering prevention and care service to high risk population (Truckers) long distance truck drivers and their helpers spend month at a stretch on the highways and thus are away from their home family members for extended periods of time. These truckers are more likely to engage in high risk sexual behavior than short distance truckers. They may have multiple sexual partners including female sex worker (FSWs ,MSMs) on the highway , or have a other fixed partner en route or at place where they stop for rest or food .

This program improves sexual and reproductive health (SRH) among these population and improve general health by helping them reduce the harm associated with behavior such as truckers.

Under this program we are providing following services to them
  • Counsel Truckers to use of condom to safe themselves and their partner from HIV/AIDS.
