Gender is transversally present across all our actions. Under the Gender and Development (GD) approach, we propel the empowerment of women in their communities, particularly those affected by NTDs. We work with the aim of increasing participation and influence for women in decision-making, advocating their political, economic and social rights.
For Anesvad Foundation, environmental sustainability means relating environmental factors to their impact on health.
We ensure that all our interventions minimise the negative impact on the environment, and place particular emphasis on the mismanagement and treatment of waste and refuse to reduce the transmission of infectious diseases.
Our commitment is to help people with disabilities live a full life and have equal access to health services, and our aim is to bring down barriers. Therefore, we work closely with organisations of people with disabilities and those incapacitated by NTDs.
Interculturalism is our basis for dialogue and mutual understanding between all parties involved in improving the health of communities affected by NTDs. Local health practices and processes, communities’ cultural and social traditions and the management of ethnic, linguistic, cultural and religious diversity is key for us to bring about change.
