At Salud por Derecho we define our own agenda and defend it against all odds. We design our projects and campaigns with a singular focus on what is needed to change things and defend human rights.
RIGHT TO HEALTH
WE ARE A NON-PROFIT FOUNDATION THAT DEFENDS HUMAN RIGHTS SO THAT ALL PEOPLE, WHEREVER THEY LIVE, CAN EXERCISE THEIR RIGHT TO HEALTH.
WE ARE INDEPENDENT
We believe in the possibility of changing the world around us and in the power of citizens and ideas. To that end we campaign, formulate proposals and advocate for change, placing the focus on the responsibility of governments and political representatives.
WE WORK AS PART OF A NETWORK
We sit different stakeholders down at the same table and work in partnership with other civil society organizations; professional, academic and patient associations; and think tanks and social movements in fields like global health, development, social justice and the economy.
WHAT WE DO
40 million people are currently infected with the AIDS virus worldwide and only 50% have access to treatment. We work towards an adequate global response to this pandemic and eradicating it entirely.
The impact of climate change is one of the main threats to health and it makes millions of people more vulnerable. We are working to persuade governments and European institutions to implement policies that can curb its effects.
The current pharmaceutical R&D model is broken, as evidenced by the high prices of medicine and lack of research into unprofitable diseases. Our efforts are geared towards a just and sustainable model.
Millions of people get sick and die from causes that could largely be prevented with access to health services. We work towards a model of social protection to ensure universal access.
BECOME A MEMBER
NOT SURE WHAT YOU CAN DO TO HELP? HELP US BY BECOMING A MEMBER
You can catch a plane and travel the world with your backpack full of medicine. You can switch careers and become a doctor and go to where they need you most. You can study law and fight to change it in the heart of the European Union. You can also give up everything and dedicate your life to creating a more just world that gives everyone equal access to health. You can do all of these things, but you can also become a Salud por Derecho member or associate and support those who are already doing these things for you.
