HIV/AIDS is said to be one of the deadliest disease of modern times, incurable. The disease, is taking fortune out of the victims physically, mentally, psychologically, socially and economically. Efforts are being made at global level to control the deadly disease. In spite of all the efforts and the money spent, the disease is still a challenging one. UNAIDS has strategized year 2030 to end HIV/AIDS. In this background there is a need to relook the way the challenge of HIV/AIDS is addressed. This paper relooks into the various issues both from preventive and combating perspectives, by providing conceptual notes not well discussed among the scientific community. Taking hints from Ayurvedic texts the paper discusses a multidimensional approach involving food, sexual attitudes, condoms, behavioral, education; all with yogic (yoga based) approach as the base to address the challenge faster and better.
