  2. Scale up of ART centres for the district of Lawngtlai, Serchhip and Saiha
  3. Link ART Centre at all probable CHCs and PHCs
  4. ART Refill at Closed Settings e.g. Reformed Centres, TBCC etc
  5. ART Refill at other private HIV service provider e.g. IVPHEN, CSC,  Positive networks
  6. ART Extension at PWNM, Aizawl to decongest ART Plus Centre. Stable clients will be shifted to this extension and it will be overseen by one ART staff posted there.
