Welcome to Lotus Medical Foundation

Since  2006 , Lotus Medical Foundation is thrust is on HIV/AIDS, as it was observed that Kolhapur is a high prevalence district .The activities include generating awareness, arranging for screening /testing ,information about prevention and holistic support to people living with HIV (PLHIV) including inpatient and outpatient care.

The first targeted program was the “Prevention of mother to child transmission of HIV” (PMTCT). The field exposure revealed the stigma, inadequate treatment ,exploitation and ignorance about HIV and AIDS.Further it was found that most hospitals tend to shun away patients with HIV/AIDs. So the next step was to start a 12-bed hospital for HIV positive patients, to provide medical care, medicines, proper orientation , and counseling of persons living with HIV and their relatives/ care givers.
