Paneer Poo is a support network for HIV positive women living in isolation and/or poverty. It stemmed from our Prevention of Parent to Child Transmission of HIV (PPTCT) programme.

Paneer Poo is a community based organisation which addresses the prevalence of HIV/AIDS within Virudhunagar district, Tamil Nadu, India. It seeks to empower the women in the community through advocating for women’s rights with a particular focus on property entitlement and creating employment opportunities and Self-Help Groups.

Paneer Poo has become an independent trust, securing memberships in Tamil Nadu Volunteer Health Association (TNVHA) and Partnership for Tuberculosis Care and Control (PTCC), New Delhi in acknowledgement of their work. Paneer and its leaders also participate in the quarterly district advisory committee organised by the District Collector as part of an effort to ensure health and welfare of PLHA in the district.
