A Model for India and Rest of the World
YRGCARE has created a model of comprehensive HIV/AIDS diagnostic testing, education, treatment and prevention, as well as community-based research that has become a model for India and rest of the world. It has been an honor and joy for many Brown University and Fenway Community Health colleagues and trainees to work side -by -side with the valiant and innovative team at YRGCARE.

One of the Most Outstanding NGOs in India
It is the commitment, selflessness, and concern for health and welfare of the HIV infected and affected communities in Tamil Nadu that makes YRGCARE one of the most outstanding NGOs in India, and perhaps in the world. Indeed, our collaboration now spans two-thirds of the life span of YRGCARE, for which I am very grateful.

Won Several Encounters
When I first met you (Dr Suniti Solomon, Director, YRGCARE) nearly two decades back, you were fighting  a long battle in convincing people of the impending disaster, HIV/ AIDS was to wreck on India in  general and Tamil Nadu in particular. But you never gave up, believed in your convictions, fought the battle and won several encounters.
