Abstract

From an estimated 85,200 HIV-infected individuals in Mumbai in 1997, at least 4120 excess deaths attributed to AIDS occurred among 15-54-year-olds. To prevent repetition of this excess in other parts of India, priority intervention programmes should be instituted quickly because the window of opportunity is closing quickly.
