Health experts say, many more commit suicide, which, are triggered by fear of rejection and ostracism by the society. “The rate of suicide death among HIV patients in India is very high. Due to the efforts by the government and different other agencies working on HIV/ AIDS, the treatment facilities for the infection has definitely improved but there is still the lack of social acceptance. There is no proper rehabilitation plan and quite often, it has been seen that the HIV-positive patients commit suicide either because they are not ready to face the society or they feel that they are going to be a liability on their family,” said Sanjeev Sheel of the Delhi State AIDS Control Society.
