IMS was piloted first time in Karnataka by NACO as a National initiative. This pilot project was collaborated with Clinton Health Foundation of India of training and implementation and technical support.
Karnataka has become the first high prevalent state in the country for implementation of IMS. Currently, KSAPS and all the ART Centres of Karnataka are using IMS for ARV Drug management. In future, it would be scaled up to remaining facilities of KSAPS like ICTC, STD clinics, Blood Banks etc as well.

The Inventory Management System (IMS) developed and implemented by NACO, for end beneficiary to effectively utilize its resources to achieve program objectives.
