School Education programmes:
The society is vowed to bring better health facilities for the people. But in today’s India survival itself has become a problem due to the onslaught of the virus that brings in HIV/AIDS, with 5.1 million people affected by HIV/AIDS. Tamil nadu has become number one state in HIV Prevalence overtaking even Maharastra. Hence the Carmelite Sisters realized the need of the hour has put its heart and soul in the AIDS prevention activities such as the following :
HIV/AIDS awareness activities:
Networking with local NGOs who were working in AIDS prevention program the society conducted a number of programs for a plethora of people like SHG members, students, rural men aimed at spreading the awareness on HIV/AIDS in Villupuram district. The society took part in the World AIDS Day observance, exhibition and distribution of IEC materials. More than 16 programmes were conducted during the year. Besides, interaction with the people regarding HIV/AIDS.
Care Programs for those living with HIV/AIDS:
The Krupalaya have realized that they can be no prevention without care of the HIV infected. Hence we plunged into care programs for PLHAs. But the condition of these PLHAs turned out to be pathetic. While suffering from various diseases due to the onslaught of HIV they lacked food and medicines. Hence we started to supply some rice, cereals and other materials for them. We also referred them to GH, PHCs, Community Care Centre (CCC) and to other NGOs run clinic for treatment of their opportunistic infections treatment.

In Tamil nadu 80 per cent of the HIV patients have contracted tuberculosis (TB) hence the Government of Tamil Nadu had launched DOTS program into 2003, whereby the TB patients were administered TB medicines immediately after ascertaining their TB status. Thereby treatment adherence was guaranteed. This scheme was further improved thigh the RNTC programs. The Krupalaya fully involved in the PLHAs in the RNTC program so that, every one including the PLHA who suffered from TB received full treatment from the PHC and GH. Those who were not able to come to the hospital this had resulted in as many as 55 TB patients, majority of them PLHAs to be fully cured of their pulmonary TB. Besides these, the children of PLHAs to get admission in schools and pursue their education, irrespective of their status of their parents. The children were provided fees and other educational materials.
