Started in 2001, Arogyadhara is a health help line to musicians and dancers who have striven for the art and are in need of support for health. Carried out through a network of medical specialists and hospitals who have offered their services for the cause and the financial support extended by the Arogyadhara Fund as decided by a committee meant for the purpose.
Besides free consultancy, a considerable rebate is offered on treatment as well as hospital expenses, if any. The scheme provides financial assistance for such treatments, the extent of such assistance is decided by the committee on the merits of the case. A large group of doctors, with specialization in various fields, have voluntarily enlisted themselves under this scheme. This is a flagship ‘Artistes for artistes’ initiative where artistes perform to raise funds for their counterparts requiring medical help. It may be noted that so far more than eighty artistes have been benefited through this programme.
