Anesvad - por el derecho a la salud
Anesvad Foundation is an independent, non-denominational NGO founded in 1968 committed to the fulfilment and promotion of the human right to health. Our field of intervention focuses on the control, elimination and eradication of Neglected Tropical Diseases (NTDs), specifically those ones with skin manifestations such as Buruli ulcer, leprosy, lymphatic filariasis and yaws, which affect the people living in the most vulnerable conditions in Sub Saharan African countries.
Anesvad Foundation fights against these NTDs using and promoting an Integrated Intervention Strategy in partnership with relevant and strategic field actors and in line with Country Health Policies and WHO mandate. Additionally, we consider the following cross cutting issues: gender equity, disability prevention and inclusion, environmental protection and inter-cultural respect, as well as the Social Determinants of Health such us WASH, nutrition and education.
