Society for Positive Mother’s Development (SPMD) was started in the year 2004 by the group of positive mothers. It was started for the welfare of positive women as they are the ultimate sufferers in the HIV scenario, no matter who is the cause for the infection. So it started working to remove stigma and discrimination for positive women in the society and also it aims that no women should be infected in future.

Gradually it started giving peer counseling, counseling training, support group meeting, advocacy, awareness program and after one year of working, it got fund from APAC – Aids Prevention and Control project in 2005 to focus more on Care and Support and Home Based Care.
