How we work

In partnership with communities, civil society and local authorities, we implement projects in the field to sustainably improve access to healthcare for people in vulnerable situations. Our actions are guided by the needs expressed by those populations.

We also advocate for lasting change. We expose the intolerable the better to condemn it. We work with decision-makers and civil society actors to revise and adopt policies and strategies that facilitate access to health.

To provide real access to healthcare for everyone.

Every person must have equitable access to healthcare, without financial, cultural, or geographic barriers.
