Despite having one of the largest public health systems in the world, healthcare in Brazil is fragile and far from democratic. In rural areas, especially in the country’s north and northeast, health infrastructure are even more precarious, lacking services and even doctors. Poor medical training, unsafe work conditions and obstetric violence, together with poor housing and public sanitation for the general population, are just some of the factors that hinder access to proper healthcare. For this reason, we support social organizations that work to bridge these gaps and improve health.

We invest in initiatives that promote wellness, illness and accident prevention, democratic access to healthcare, and the scale of successful health practices.
