​VALUES

We believe that every woman, baby, and child has the right to access the high quality, safe, and effective health care they need in order to save, and improve, the quality of their lives - enabling them not only to live, but through empowerment and education, to have the opportunity to lead healthy and productive lives.  To this end, we believe in supporting public health systems and advocating for effective treatment to be accessible to all and free at the point of delivery.  We believe in, and are committed to, advocating for effective change at a local, governmental and international level.  We believe in, and are committed to, finding evidence-based, innovative solutions to the clinical and systems problems we identify.
