Truly I say to you as you did it to one of the least of these my brethren, you did it to me (Mt 25: 40)

Inspired by the life of Jesus who preached good news to the poor, healed the sick and consoled the afflicted, Msgr. Louis Stephen Charbonnaux of the Paris Foreign Mission and First Vicar Apostolic of Mysore Vicariate, founded the Congregation of the Sisters of St.Anne , Bangalore in 1857 in order to bring good news to the poor and needy through the loving service. Shanthinilaya Community Health Care Centre, was established in the year 1975, to continue the healing ministry of Christ among the poor, marginalized, downtrodden and discriminated section of the Society in Karnataka, India. As the care of HIV/Aids is a burning issue in this era, we decided to care for the HIV patients in our centre in the year 2009.

Shanthinilaya is a 20 bedded community care centre for the People living with HIV (PLHIV) especially for Antiretroviral therapy (ART initiation) and management of minor opportunistic infection. We have patients from all over Karnataka irrespective of caste, creed, age, sex and religion. This CCC is attached to Victoria and Bowring Hospital in Bangalore city, Karnataka, India


To provide holistic health care to the marginalized and poor sections of the Society with special focus on exploited and stigmatic people infected with HIV/AIDS.
