- Directly Observed Treatment, Short course (DOTS): Operating under Revised National Tuberculosis Control (RNTC) Program, the treatment wing traces Tuberculosis (TB) at its infancy and provides DOTS to TB-infected patients in this authorized center (Nearly 1500 HIV-TB co-infected patients have been traced and treated here).
- Integrated Counselling and Testing Centre (ICTC): High-risk HIV/AIDS population is screened by the Centre for HIV free of cost (More than 3500 people have been tested).
- Antiretroviral Therapy (ART): A combination regimen of ART drugs are used to slow the progression of the HIV virus into the AIDS disease. This helps the immune system to recover and work effectively which, in most cases, allows the infected to lead long and healthy life. The availability of ART drugs, in particular, the pediatric formulations is difficult and costly. Also, the severe side effects deter many patients from following the regimen dutifully.
