Simavi

Basic health for all

Simavi is an international development organization. In 2020 Simavi wants to have fundamentally improved the health of 10 million people. Health is a prerequisite to get out of poverty. Therefore, Simavi works in marginalized communities on water, sanitation and hygiene, and on sexual and reproductive health and rights.

Simavi’s strength lies in bringing together communities, businesses and governments – in the countries in which it operates and beyond. For only by sharing knowledge and experience, Simavi can contribute to a sustainable basis for a healthy existence. As such, Simavi is always looking for collaborations that brings them closer to their mission: basic health for all.

Since February 2014, Women on Wings works with Simavi and Rutgers on a program called ‘Making periods normal’ which aims to improve the situation in India regarding menstruation. The program ‘Making periods normal’ has a duration of three years.

“Women on Wings has helped to improve the lives of more than 200,000 families in rural India. By sharing knowledge and skills, it enables women to earn their own living. A wonderful example of helping people make a better future for themselves and their communities.”
