KHPT is the first organisation to develop and use Colour Coded Drug Packs (CCDPs) for Syndromic Case Management (SCM) of sexually transmitted diseases (STI) among female sex workers (FSWs) in India. t was piloted in Bagalkot district, as part of the India Canada Collaborative HIV/AIDS Project (ICHAP) in 2004 and eventually scaled up across 12 districts in Karnataka with the support of The Gates Foundation.
A cornerstone of STI Management, CCDPs is endorsed by the World Health Organisation and serve as a comprehensive approach for STI control. These packs make it simple for doctors to treat STI among FSWs based on patient history and symptoms.
Family Health International (FHI) and National AIDS Control Organisation (NACO) have since then adopted the use of CCDPs for both presumptive treatment and syndromic case management with Most at Risk Populations (MARPS). Under the government supported National AIDS Control Programme (NACP) phase III, the drug packs have been supplied to the Targeted Interventions free of cost.
