Although delivering medical services and empowering populations to take action are fundamental to foster longterm access to universal healthcare and human rights, another important means to ensure the sustainability of our actions in the field is to drive forward positive changes to policies and practices that impact the health of vulnerable populations.

Advocacy seeks to trigger these sustainable changes, which can involve :

  • Adopting new policies and/or practices to improve the health of the population groups targeted by our projects;
  • Questioning, revising or amending existing policies and/or practices detrimental to the health of the people targeted by our projects;
  • Enforcing existing policies or laws that are not being applied but which could improve the health of the population groups targeted by our projects.
