The Tripura State AIDS Control Society (TSACS) has reported that five to seven new HIV cases are detected daily, highlighting a concerning trend in the state. The Joint Director of TSACS revealed that drug abuse among students from various educational institutions has been identified as the primary driver behind the rise in HIV cases. This epidemic has impacted students from 220 schools and 24 colleges and universities across Tripura. The overall HIV scenario in the state remains alarming, with 8,729 individuals registered in antiretroviral therapy (ART) centers, of which 5,674 are actively receiving treatment for HIV.
