AROGYA AGAM is based in Tamil Nadu, South India. We grew from the leprosy clinic started by Dora Scarlett, the founder of our parent organisation. We started AROGYA AGAM in 1982 as an Indian registered charitable society.
Our vision is to help build a just society and our mission to secure rights, health and development for marginalised people.
We work with the most disadvantaged people, giving priority to women and children – people living with HIV, tuberculosis and leprosy; Dalits and the most discriminated among them; Tribals, women in prostitution, transgendered people, sexual minorities, children at risk and people with disability.
Our strategy is to mainstream gender, child rights, disability and the needs of the most disadvantaged people of the area. We continue to provide direct services to fill gaps in existing facilities where necessary. But the main strategy is to encourage and support community volunteers and community based organisations to advocate for their rights and entitlements.
