Activism for the right to health is strong in India, and Indian civil society has traditionally been dynamic and occasionally successful in pushing for better HIV care. For instance, in 2011, HIV activists won the battle of accessing second-line antiretroviral treatment (ART) for all patients who need it, previously it had been available only to patients who received first-line ART in the public sector.
