Pillars

“Through our field research, we contribute to public policies aimed at improving the lives of the people suffering from neglected tropical diseases, regularly affecting the most vulnerable populations in the community.

Our programs, projects and actions are executed based on three pillars.”

  • Translational Research

Key to our activity is field work, which helps identify barriers, implement solutions and obtain evidence for the improvement of health policies. This strategy allows us escalating the impact of actions that make a difference.

  • Knowledge Dissemination

We work on the so called neglected tropical diseases or NTDs. Changing this paradigm requires to gain visibility of the fact that over 1 billion people in our planet are affected by diseases that could be prevented. Our main objective is to educate children in school, health professionals and society at large.

  • Public-Private Cooperation

The magnitude of the impact of these illnesses on Public Health calls for the aggregation of every effort. We define our contribution as the ability to articulate partnerships sustained by the private sector, academia and the State.
