Working Philosophy

HAIN believes that health is a development issue with economic, political, and cultural dimensions. It believes that health comes with empowering people & communities with access to objective & accurate information on health care to make their own decisions & to organize for their rights. With the help of its vast information network, HAIN seeks to provide information at the local level, where it is needed the most. ​
