VHS-YRG Care Medical Centre

The VHS-YRG Care Medical Centre, set up in VHS with the support of the Y.R. Gaitonde Centre for AIDS Research and Education, has a 24-bed ward and a day care centre that treats AIDS patients. Other than Government Hospitals, VHS is the one of the very few private hospitals to take care of HIV / AIDS patients.

To offer the patients added services, the VHS-YRG Care Infectious Diseases Laboratory focuses on newer diagnostic methods and research on HIV / AIDS and other opportunistic infections.

The research projects include:

  • Natural history and clinical characterisation of HIV disease in South India
  • A sero-surveillance study on the prevalence of HIV 1 and HIV 2 in Tamil Nadu
  • Seroprevalence / risk factor analysis of HIV in partners of patients with HIV in Chennai
  • A randomised controlled clinical trial of structured intermittent therapy (SIT) vs continuous therapy in HIV positive patients in South India
