Background: The complex nature of the HIV /AIDS epidemic in India demands for a skilled technical and managerial human resource. India's response to the human resource capacity building initiatives for better response to HIV/AIDS seems to be impressive; however it faces some key challenges. Aim: The purpose of this paper is to identify and catalogue human resource capacity building initiatives and outline the challenges for better response to HIV/AIDS in India. Materials and Methods: We reviewed and ana­lyzed published articles and reports, grey litera­ture, including organizational websites, self-published tools and articles, non-academic reports and telephonic interview with some stakeholders. Snowballing approach was used to collect information. Results: We hope that this paper would provide an understanding of the current status of capacity building initiatives in India. We have identified certain challenges, particularly related to monitoring and evaluation that need to be addressed in capacity building programs at the planning stage. Conclusion: Moreover these challenges can be viewed as potential areas for operational research.
