Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has. M. Mead.

Our advocacy strategies address social determinants of health such as education and ocupation. The advocacy areas we work are as interconnected as possible with the Foundation’s Education and Training, Research and Development Consultancy programmes.
