Focusing on the following sustainable development goals (SDGs)
How we work
We focus on the quality of medical services and on good quality, friendly, patient-centred nursing care. We invest in critical infrastructure for health facilities and help ensure they have access to water and a reliable electricity supply.
... and why
The local authorities in the remote, rural project regions do not have the resources to invest in adequate health infrastructure. The health facilities lack well-trained staff and medical equipment. In response, SolidarMed supports and trains health workers. We provide equipment and improve diagnostics. We invest in the infrastructure of health facilities and help local authorities to plan and implement health programmes.
