No one should suffer or die from a curable disease.
Go with us to the ends of the earth to honour this pledge.
Neglected tropical diseases
occur in poor countries. Although they are easily curable, one in five of the world's population is a victim.
People with disabilities
are severely disadvantaged in poor countries. Their chances of a normal life are slim.
are cut off from the rest of the world. Hospitals are difficult to reach, there is no access to doctors, the hygiene is inadequate.
Step by step towards Health for All
As part of efforts to meet the Sustainable Development Goals for 2030, governments around the world are reforming their health systems to ensure that all people have equal access to healthcare. As one of the first developing countries Nepal is moving towards a more equitable healthcare policy with a national insurance system.
Turning life round for the better
Sri Lanka is among the countries with the highest number of newly discovered cases of leprosy, with around 2,000 new cases reported every year. The relatively high number of affected individuals is an indication of the health threat faced by the population. Against this backdrop, the new project from FAIRMED is supporting the fight against leprosy in Sri Lanka.
New leprosy vaccine approved for testing on humans
Leprosy is one of the oldest diseases in human history. Every two minutes, somebody is diagnosed with leprosy, an infectious disease that occurs above all in the world’s poorest areas. Now, a new vaccine could prevent a great deal of suffering in the future and even eliminate leprosy entirely.
Crisis in the Central African Republic – FAIRMED standing firm
Renewed violence in the Central African Republic is forcing large numbers of people to flee their homes. For those fleeing as well as those left behind, access to basic necessities such as clean water, food and sanitation is lacking.

Setting up mobile operations teams
Using bicycles, motorcycles and boats, we reach people in the most remote regions.
