The Goa care and support initiative that began in 2004 was the first of two care centers that was established in the state of Goa. Situated in Mapusa this centre is located in serene surroundings. In the initial years there was a lot of stigma directed towards the running of this centre from the surrounding communities. Today the centre has a warm homely atmosphere and has been instrumental in spreading awareness across large sections of society in Goa.
Capacity:The centre has 10 beds and provides all necessary care requirements for PLHA in the region. For other advanced services the centre networks with other providers in the region.
