SATHI works on health rights issues, through partnerships with civil society organisations
SATHI works on issues related to health rights, through partnerships with civil society organisations, and facilitates advocacy at the local, district, state and national levels. Adopting a rights based approach, SATHI works towards promoting the perspective that instead of looking for substitutes for the public systems or replacing them, it is essential to make these systems accountable and responsive to public needs, through organised and sustained public action.
We dream of a society that has realised its right to health and health care; a society which has eliminated health inequities and structural barriers that prevent people from accessing healthy living conditions and quality health care; where people are not appendages of the healthcare system, but are its prime movers, and have universal access to health care as a human right.
To contribute to building the movement for ‘Health For All’ through collective action and research. In collaboration with like-minded organisations, we will work towards achieving equity-based universal healthcare for all Indians.
- Partnerships and multi-level advocacy – SATHI works on health rights issues, through partnerships with civil society organisations, and facilitates advocacy at the local, district, state and national levels.
- Community-level interventions- SATHI’s emphasis on community-level interventions stems from its belief that the most lucid analysis of social problems comes from those who are directly affected by them.
- Action oriented Research- While SATHI’s work involves various project activities, right from its inception SATHI has been involved in systematic action-oriented research, i.e. research which culminates in focused advocacy and action.
