Health and Wellbeing
SDIA works with projects in challenging socio-economic environments to reduce illness and mortality, and improve quality of life. We help to build healthcare facilities, improve healthcare infrastructure, promote health education, and encourage community participation whenever possible.
We at SDIA believe that access to quality healthcare is a basic human right. We support initiatives that:
- Build and operate healthcare clinics in highly undeserved communities.
- Focus on delivering healthcare services to vulnerable groups such as pregnant mothers, babies, young children and the elderly.
- Provide access to clean water and good-quality sanitation, thereby diminishing the spread of communicable diseases.
- Encourage community participation in the healthcare process via fee-based “health mutuals”, which help to subsidize clinics.
