Mundo Sano Foundation is a non-profit organization involved in the research and prevention of transmissible diseases such as Chagas disease, dengue or hantaviruses diseases.
Born in 1993, develops and manages intervention models based on technology transfer in order to share approaches or models with the affected communities. This, for the purpose of integrating scientific activities with the needs of the most socially vulnerable endemic areas.
Currently chaired by Dr. Silvia Gold, its aim is to achieve tangible results which can be applied to different situations, both domestic and international, with projects that tend to achieve assessable and sustainable social impact.
On the basis of a multidisciplinary work, Mundo Sano is financed by private companies concerned with scientific knowledge applied to improve living conditions of the most affected areas, led by entrepreneurs Hugo Sigman and Luis Alberto Gold.
