We are a non-profit foundation that defends human rights so that all people, wherever they live, can exercise their right to health. We work independently of institutions, religious beliefs, and political ideologies. We receive support from memberships, private donors and foundations.
In 2003, a group of activists decided to come together in order to get Spain and the rest of the world to stop looking the other way in the fight against AIDS in impoverished countries, those most affected by the disease. Today, Salud por Derecho creates campaigns, formulates proposals and advocates the defence of the right to health from the perspective of social justice and inequality. We work on putting the focus on governments and addressing causes and solutions that would tackle the infringement on the right to health in the long run.
We work on a national, European and global level from our headquarters in Madrid.
