Nearly half the children from the village near the coal rich districts of Hazaribagh, Ramgarh and Koderma in Jharkhand are HIV+ and most have lost at least one parent to AIDS. Official figures put the number of infected people in the state at nearly 50,000. In 2005, Sister Britto of the Holy Cross Society and volunteers of the Jharkhand Network of HIV+ people began identifying children like Ramesh and Anjali. In Gujarat where the sex ratio of 918 females per 1000 males is lower than the national figure of 940 and has, according to the 2011 census, actually worsened in the last decade, the future of HIV+ children appears dim.
