Values

  • People-centred medical model of care. Our projects will be focused on and organized around the health needs of people and communities.

  • Human rights-based approach to TB care. We acknowledge that TB is not only a medical problem but also a socio-economic one. To eliminate TB, we need to recognize and realize the rights of those living with, and vulnerable to, TB, including access to quality healthcare, nutritious foods and safe housing.

  • Inuit ownership and control of projects which take place on their land. We will ensure that Inuit make up the majority of the local staff positions in our projects.

  • Integration of Inuit Societal Values (Inuit nuatqatigiittiarniagut) into all our projects. We acknowledge and respect the key role the values play in ensuring the health and wellbeing of Inuit communities.
