Our mission and values

Our mission is to respond to major public health needs of Greece and Europe, by conducting rigorous academic research and translating it into action through education, advocacy and direct service. We promote health and health equity for all Europeans.

This mission is rooted in the belief that health equality is a necessary pre-requisite for broader social justice. We are committed to equality, social inclusion and respect for individual differences and choices. 

At our core, we value hard work and perseverance that is based on an inherent obligation to give back to one's community. These core values determine our selection of projects and also shape our relationships with each other, with beneficiaries, and with collaborators.
