We are working towards basic health for all

Health is the first step
out of poverty

Simavi realises structural improvement to the health conditions of people in marginalised communities in Africa and Asia. We know from experience that investments in Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH) and in Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights (SRHR) are vital for people to be able to lead a healthy life. Therefore we concentrate our efforts in these two areas.
