National Aids Research Institute to drop focus on HIV, undergo name change

National Aids Research Institute to drop focus on HIV, undergo name change

The National Aids Research Institute (NARI) is set to drop its focus on research into the Acquired Immuno-deficiency Syndrome (Aids) and also undergo a name change in the coming months.

NARI will no longer serve as a single disease centre but will address other areas of public health too.

Why change in focus?

The reason being, HIV infection has come down majorly, showing a success in controlling and preventing the disease in the country and the incidence rate too has dropped majorly. Hence, to make better use of the institute and its research team in other fields as well, the name of NARI will be changed.

National AIDS Research Institute [NARI] was established in October 1992 in Bhosari, Pune.
