BBC World Service Trust Media Campaign

Global Science Academy was partner in the BBC World Service Trust's nationwide media campaign. BBC World Service Trust provided name, address and telephone number of GSA (amongst six organisations in India) on its flayer titled AIDS Se Bachav, Kucch Batein Kucch Sujhav (Protection from AIDS, a Few Facts and Suggestions).

This flayer was distributed amongst people across the country people's request. These people got a New Delhi address while viewing the two most famous television serials Jasoos Vijay and Hath Se Hath Mila on Doordarshan's national channel (DD-1) as well as spontaneous advertisements thereon. From this New Delhi address they found the above mentioned flayer, containing initial information on STDs/HIV/AIDS. For detailed information on these aspects, a number of individuals and organisations contacted us daily. Regular HIV/AIDS awareness advertisements by BBC World Service Trust on Doordarshan maximised queries of individuals.

In this way GSA got the responsibility to work as a clearinghouse for further information on STDs/HIV/AIDS and related topics by distributing IEC as well as responding to specific questions.

TI Project UPSACS

National AIDS Control Organization (NACO), Ministry of Health, Government of India, through UP State AIDS Control Society (UP SACS) sanctioned a project on Targeted Intervention amongst Commercial Sex Workers (CSWs) to GSA. This project is being successfully run since January 2002. Secretary and CEO of the organisation worked as the ex-officio Project Coordinator of this project for three spells.

Sentinel Surveillance Site

GSA has been selected by NACO, Ministry of Health and Family Welfare, Government of India, as one of the two NGOs in Uttar Pradesh to work as a Sentinel Site under National Annual Sentinel Surveillance (NAAS) since 2003.
