UDAAN, a non-profit community-based organization, founded in March 2001, is committed to advancing the rights of a cross-section of marginal communities like PLHIV (People Living with HIV) and particularly individuals from socially stigmatized communities to access treatment and care in a stigma free environment.
As the name goes, UDAAN, which means flight in Hindi, is translated historically across many endeavours. This includes working in four districts of Maharashtra and setting up community structures of and by the excluded community to spearhead various services related to health and other social inclusion initiatives by mainstreaming the issues and concerns of people affected by HIV/AIDS. And to do this, we capacitate our community to facilitate and lead the process of social inclusion and enable young people, children, women and trans-persons who are victims and survivors of abuse and violence, to shape the societal response.
UDAAN is a Public Charitable Trust with its headquarters in Mumbai and field interventions and partnerships in Mumbai, Pune, Raigad and Thane districts of Maharashtra.
