Sharing knowhow and joining forces towards Health for All

Health Works: countries

Health Works: countries

Afghanistan: Health Works works on the sustainable (re)construction and rehabilitation of health care in areas disrupted by war or disaster. Also in Afghanistan we work with ‘evidence-based’ interventions on accessible health care. After all, reconstruction starts with health.

Burundi: We work on the sustainable (re)construction of health care in areas disrupted by war or disaster. Also in Burundi we work with ‘evidence-based’ interventions on accessible health care. After all, reconstruction starts with health.

Columbia: For more than 50 years, Colombia has been immersed in an armed conflict that is considered the worst humanitarian crisis in the western hemisphere and the oldest on-going conflict in the world. Forced internal displacement directly affects around 6.9 million people. Despite the progress made in the peace dialogues led by the Colombian government, the youth sees their rights trampled on, finding themselves in in situations of exclusion, displacement, armed recruitment, blockades and other types of violence associated with the armed conflict, leading sometimes to death.

Lesotho: To support the Ministry of Health in reaching better maternal and child health, Health Works implements a Perfomance Based Financing (PBF) project.

Nepal: Health Works has been operating in Nepal since 1996 in the field of psychosocial support and reproductive health. Local workers are trained to provide community based psychosocial services to those affected by political violence, refugees, women and girl survivors of human trafficking and torture victims. In 2005 the Nepal office became an independent organization: TPO Nepal.

South Sudan: Though the challenges for the new state are thus enormous and the future is still uncertain, the South Sudanese are very motivated to improve their living conditions and to rebuild the country. Health Works supports them by working together on health in the broadest sense. This includes improving the health system, but also restoring mutual trust.
