The HIV Response

When the first HIV positive person was identified on Sri Lankan soil in 1987, there was no proper treatment or care available for the ordinary person in Sri Lanka. During the early days of the epidemic, the lack of awareness and fear caused almost all PLHIVs to be heavily stigmatized by society and faced severe hardships in life.
In 1997, a doctor called Kamalika Abeyrathna founded an organization to meet the needs of those suffering from HIV/AIDS. Thus Lanka Plus was born. Lanka Plus admits any PLHIV person who is a Sri Lankan into its membership and thereafter, he/she is eligible for all services provided by Lanka Plus, free of charge.
Over the years, the organization has expanded and the membership has grown. Lanka Plus provides services in counseling, care and support, awareness, positive speaking, a drop-in centre, financial support for children and support for self-employment.
