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

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

People with disabilities

are severely disadvantaged in poor countries. Their chances of a normal life are slim.



Marginalized communities

Marginalized communities

are cut off from the rest of the world. Hospitals are difficult to reach, there is no access to doctors, the hygiene is inadequate.

  • Why the establishment of health centres is not enough on its own

    Well-equipped delivery rooms, medicines and skilled staff are needed for women to be able to bring their babies into this world without complications. The first step to a safe birth begins with the communication of knowledge. You can read here about how FAIRMED is supporting mothers in the Nepalese region of Baglung through awareness-raising campaigns.
