Healthy people are more likely to participate in the economy and therefore contribute to the development of their country. We want to help develop an efficient and sustainable health system which ensures quality health care for all.
What we do
Access to primary health care for the poorest
Health and sexual and reproductive rights

Assisting health ministries
We assist health ministries in developing a network of functional health entities and we support them in their role as organ that sets the standards, controls the quality and finances the healthcare services.
Developing staff competences
We work to ensure the ongoing training and specialisation of health executives, including hospital management, decentralisation of surgical skills, etc.
