Access to quality healthcare

— A targeted solution to sustainably develop healthcare —

Primary health care, essential to sustainable growth in any healthcare landscape, is developing unevenly in the South.

More than thirty years after the Declaration of Alma-Ata, which sought to protect and promote the health of all people by the year 2000, the declaration has clearly failed. Despite a good deal of progress, much of the world’s population has seen its state of health stagnate or even deteriorate. Access to medicines and treatment of infectious diseases, such as tuberculosis and malaria, remains problematic in many parts of the world. More than six million children under the age of five die each year from treatable or preventable diseases, and about 300,000 women succumb to complications in pregnancy, childbirth or postpartum (2012 WHO/World Bank/UNICEF report). The inequalities are stark indeed: Africa alone supports a quarter of the global burden of disease, and represents a tiny portion of the budget dedicated to health worldwide, according to a Médecins du Monde analysis based on the 2006 WHO report on health.

The Foundation strives to provide support to ensure that access to healthcare –a fundamental right for every human being – is recognised in the most vulnerable communities in emerging countries and people plunged in humanitarian crises due to conflicts or natural disasters. It has been working for two decades in Lebanon and has been providing support to women who are victims of sexual violencein the Democratic Republic of Congo and in Central African Republic.
