What is APLICA?

APLICA is a cooperative devoted to social research in health and welfare, staffed by professionals with background in sociology, political science and public health. APLICA offers services based on methodological rigour and scientific excellence, and identifies itself with principles and values redounding to social assets.

Our compromise is to contribute to the knowledge generation and to enable its return to society, promoting changes to improve communities and people’s lives.

Which are our principles and values?

Through our work we intend to transmit and to promote principles and values which can contribute to the common good and to improve population’s health:

Equity

We incorporate in our work perspectives and actions against social inequalities, with a special interest in gender approach.

COMPRENHENSIVENESS

We uphold a wide conception of health, which includes Sumak Kawsay´s idea: We consider not only physical, psychological and spiritual components but also the ecological relationship of the human being with their context, community and environment.

SOCIAL IMPACT OF RESEARCH

Knowledge should contribute primarily to social improvements, not to the interest of researchers. We go for social impact rather than impact factor.

Social and solidarity-based economy

We identify ourselves with a network of projects that offers resources and services, but giving relevance to the social benefits of its actions.

Public service advocacy

We do not intend to create duplications or alternatives for the Public System, but to support and advocate for it and its improvement.

Respect for autonomy

We assert our independence from institutions and we advocate for the respect and strengthening of the autonomy of the communities and groups we collaborate with.
