the capacities of health care professionals in developing countries
to allow for the vulnerable populations to have access to sustainable
and quality health care. These populations are usually penalized
by their geographic isolation (rural communities), by their disease
or by their mental, physical or social handicap.
We work to
ensure that populations in developing countries can be cared for
by qualified local human resources. Our actions are centered around
training and capacity building. The actions are based on: the
understanding of local needs, the exchange of knowledge and experiences,
and the close collaboration between policy makers and health care
workers in the field.
With our partners
we have carried out more than 80 health care programs in over
25 countries. Today we have programs in Africa (Mali, Madagascar,
Mauritania, and the Central African Republic), in the Mediterranean
area (Algeria, Tunisia, and Lebanon) and in Asia (Mongolia).
