Our Commitment to Transparency
Transparency is central to Stichting Health Action International’s (HAI) business model, work programmes, policies and practices. To earn and retain the trust of our donors, staff, partners and other stakeholders, we endeavour to provide ample transparency in, and about, our operations and relationships.
What Drives Us
HAI and its partners recognise that poverty and social injustice represent the greatest barriers to sustainable health and development. Together, we work for just and equitable societies where people can participate in making decisions that affect their health and well-being. Only by achieving sustainable levels of good health can citizens take a full and active role in development.
We support rational and economic medicines policy and advocate for social justice in healthcare by improving access to essential medicines and promoting the rational use of medicines.
HAI is working towards a world where all people, especially those living in poverty, are able to exercise their human right to health. Our goal is to achieve universal and equitable access to affordable essential medicines of assured quality and to ensure that those medicines are used rationally to promote the highest standards of health throughout the world.
How We Work
Our work is based on the HAI Constitution and governed by our Foundation Board. The HAI Europe Association Board and its members also provide content expertise for our work within the European Union. Our workplan for the European Union is available here.
We consistently provide our funders with detailed reports about the work they support and are registered on the European Union’s Transparency Register. In the event that members of staff are offered gifts of limited value, HAI will mitigate the potential impact by entering them on a publically available gifts register.
Who We Work With
We work with approximately 3000 regional networks, institutional partners and individuals in 70 countries around the world. All are part of our global network of passionate experts who challenge the status quo of the medicines chain—from discovery to medicines redundancy.
Within our network, some regions have HAI-specific organisations. Anyone interested can join those region-specific networks. Each region is represented on our Foundation Board. Only the HAI Europe Association charges members a fee to support the work of its board and members. More information on joining our network is available here.
Our Annual and Financial Reports
Health Action International’s annual and financial reports provide an overview of the work we’ve done in European Union countries and globally. They also provide a detailed account of the funding that we’ve received and spent.
HAI adheres to the Algemeen Nut Beogende Instelling (ANBI) requirements for core document transparency. Our ANBI information can be found here.
