Know How

Field intervention

Improving quality health care

Our experts are invited by authorities in developing countries to develop health care services in selected regions. Our actions aim to improve the organization and quality of health care structures.
We integrate our work into all levels of the health care pyramid: local health care centers, reference hospitals and regional hospitals.

 

Improving access to health care in rural areas

We have developed an original and effective process that helps general practitioners open practice in rural areas. These doctors provide family medicine and community healthcare.
They make up a network of professionals who are capable of developing innovative solutions to treat pathologies such as epilepsy or HIV/AIDS.

 

Supporting local associations who care for vulnerable people

We strengthen associations that care for people who suffer from severe physical, mental and social handicaps. Our experiences focus specifically on children with autism or multiple-handicaps, orphans, abandoned children and single mothers. We help them through capacity building, training, and networking .

 

Our skills

 

Our principals: professionalism and ethics

In the development of our programs we ensure:
• To evaluate their feasibility (according to the local health care policy and the existence of human resources who will guarantee the sustainability of the project).
• To take into consideration local constraints.
• To promote a mindset of project development
• To evaluate the concrete benefits of the actions for the local communities.
• To evaluate the capacity to reproduce or expand the actions.

Our field missions are carried out by our members, who accompany their colleagues in developing countries according to the following ethical rules:
• To act in respect with local politics, culture and populations
• To never substitute the local professionals
• To never send medications or material that are used or ill adapted to the local conditions
• To never introduce expensive experimental technologies

To never use images in our communication which give a false image of developing countries or which portray people in developing countries in an undignified way.
