Frequently Asked Questions

Wemos is a global health advocacy organization based in the Netherlands. We were founded in 1979 by a group of Dutch medical students who believed that medical interventions in low- and middle-income countries can only be effective if the underlying causes of health inequity and injustice are addressed. Today, we continue to advocate the right to health for all.

On this page you find more information about our history.

In our ambitions to achieve global health justice, we focus on topics that are strongly influenced by global developments and on which we have long-time expertise. These are Finance for health, Access to medicines, Human resources for health, and the Dutch global health policy. On these themes, we develop solutions that are inclusive and leave no one behind. For an overview, have a look at this page.

With a dedicated team of experts and partners around the world, we influence policy and bring about structural change. We identify root causes of inequities, present solutions, and call for action. Our work improves systems for health, and the well-being of people across the world. 

To achieve this, we work in partnerships with partners across the globe, we build evidence for our policy solutions, and we lobby and advocate, meaning we try to convince policy- and decision-makers to take the action that is needed to create health justice.
