We support development processes that safeguard and promote the right to health with a global approach, working on health needs and influencing socio-economic factors, identifying poverty as the main cause for the lack of health.
We focus on the poorest people and work in the most disadvantaged areas of the world, with the help and collaboration of individuals and communities in Italy and disadvantaged countries.
We aim to strengthen public health systems, as the only institutions able to guarantee universal access to health care, counteract inequalities and improve general population’s health. Thus, we supporting them through funding, coordination, management, monitoring and evaluation of services provided.
We work via international cooperation projects in the health sector, education programs for global citizenship and health promotion, support to fair policies, measures to protect migrants and nomads’ health.
We select contexts, actors, themes, goals and appropriate technologies to implement interventions that generate real positive changes. We involve local communities to spread reliable health information and promote a conscious and universal access to health services.
Comitato Collaborazione Medica CCM is a NGO committed to promote the right to health and ensure access to essential health care in Africa and in Italy. For 50 years, we have been building upon the skills of local health workers to ensure the provision of quality care to the most vulnerable communities.
