Sharing knowhow and joining forces towards Health for All

Wemos Foundation

Wemos Foundation

Wemos envisages a world in which every person can realize his or her right to the highest attainable standard of health. Millions of people in developing countries are trapped in the vicious circle of poverty and ill health. Wemos wants to break this and structurally improve the health situation in developing countries. Wemos distinguishes the following three strategies:

  • Advocacy: Wemos promotes policies that support national health systems contributing to the structural improvement of people’s health. 
  • Cooperation with organizations in developing countries: Wemos works together with civil society organizations in Bangladesh, Bolivia, Brazil, India, Kenya, Uganda and Zambia. 
  • Communications and campaigning: Wemos mobilizes the support of health workers and (medical) students in the Netherlands by organizing campaigns and other awareness raising activities.
