Roshni Mehta (24), co–ordinator, Wake Up Pune, said their group focused on alleviating stigma attached to those infected with HIVAIDS. “We hold –day boot camps for those who want learn about the disease. We also hold workshops at companies, colleges and schools. We have made an impact but it is a slow process.
