This study was a collaborative effort of the National AIDS Control Organization (NACO), United Nations Development Program (UNDP), Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR), National Council of Applied Economic Research (NCAER), and the Institute of Health Systems (IHS)[1]. The study aimed to assess the burden of disease and socioeconomic impact of HIV/AIDS in 6 high prevalence states of the country; viz Maharashtra , Karnataka, Andhra Pradesh, Tamil Nadu, Manipur and Nagaland. The Institute was responsible for developing the study design for estimation of burden of disease due to HIV/AIDS. The IHS organized a study workshop on 2nd and 3rd of December, 2003, towards developing reliable estimates of burden of disease and socioeconomic impact of HIV/AIDS within the country. In addition to representatives from partner organizations, other professionals with expertise relevant to the study participated in the workshop.
