AAPSI originated and was registered in 1997 (Regd. No. 1636) as Aids Prevention Society of India at Panchkula Haryana. Its Founder President was Late Prof. S.P. Vij Professor Emeritus at Panjab University, Chandigarh. It started with setting up automatic Condom vending machine sin toilets along highways frequented by Drivers so as to prevent AIDS. But gradually since its canvas of activity widened it shortened its name to just AAPSI. Current President is Sh. Anupam Garg, an ex Adobe IITian.
