By applying the securitization framework in the Indian context, the previous chapter revealed that a full HIV/AIDS securitizing move was generated by the Indian government in 2004. However, as argued in chapter 7, the full securitizing move in 2004 was no longer maintained within the Indian government. In other words, HIV/AIDS was no longer framed as the most serious problem or perceived as a top-priority issue in the national government agenda. In this sense, the HIV/AIDS securitizing move in India existed in the failed rather than in full version.
