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:
We incorporate in our work perspectives and actions against social inequalities, with a special interest in gender approach.
We uphold a wide conception of health, incorporating the idea of Sumak Kawsay, that means good living: not only based on physical, psychological and spiritual components but also considering the ecological relationship of humans with its 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.
