WE ARE INDEPENDENT

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.

ADVOCACY

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.

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 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.

Image module

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.
