Biography of Founder/Executive Director Anjali Gopalan
Anjali Gopalan is the Founder and Executive Director of The Naz Foundation (India) Trust, an NGO dedicated to the fight against the HIV/AIDS epidemic in India. Anjali began working on issues related to HIV/AIDS and marginalized communities in the United States. On returning to India in the early 90ís she was frustrated at the lack of government response, and even civil society response, to the burgeoning HIV epidemic. Her response was to begin Naz India and to focus on communities stigmatized by society. Since founding Naz India, Anjali has spoken in numerous international venues about the importance of advancing research to aid HIV prevention, and also on the importance of providing quality care to those living with the HIV infection.
