Sharing knowhow and joining forces towards Health for All

Networking, cooperation, alliances

The idea of the MMI Network as a living community strongly corresponds with an inspiring concept introduced to the MMI Network by Cordaid: "We believe that development is essentially about change in human and in power relations. The ambition of Cordaid is to be the best possible social change agent we can be. To meet the challenges we are faced with, new international relationships are needed. And we need to change the existing ones. The idea of creating Global Communities of Change puts the emphasis on cooperation rather on development, building alliances, joining forces in the pursuance of an overlapping change agenda. It is basically about people (citizens, individuals) and organisations (all types) working together in the pursuance of a social change agenda. It is about agenda sharing, true joint decision-making, and joint designing of goals and results."
