A world in which no child dies from preventable causes or from a lack of basic health services.
Our mission is to save the lives of vulnerable children and their mothers. We work in areas of high child mortality. We collaborate with and empower committed in-country partners to strengthen maternal and child health in the communities we serve.
Medicines for Humanity is REACHing vulnerable children on many different levels:
R – We are RESOURCEFUL. We produce results pragmatically, effectively and efficiently.
E – We EMPOWER. Our work is structured on mentoring and building the capacity of frontline health workers.
A – We are AUDACIOUS. We put forward bold, innovative solutions in challenging environments.
C – We are fundamentally COLLABORATIVE. We invite community input and our partnerships are structured on equal power dynamics and transparency.
H – Our initiatives are HOLISTIC. We encourage and support integrated solutions that are sustainable and recognize the complex, interactive dynamics of each community health environment.
We are committed to change. Our mission is to save the lives of children and mothers around the world. But our REACH gets us there, and that makes Medicines for Humanity a unique, vital, and compelling organization.
Our Board of Directors and Staff consists of highly committed and engaged people from all around the world.
