About Wemos 

Health is a basic need and universal human right. Everyone, no matter who you are or where you come from, should have access to quality healthcare and must be protected against health threats. As a solution-oriented independent civil society organization, we advocate structural change to achieve global health justice. We dive into questions such as: How do we achieve a fair and sustainable deployment of sufficient healthcare personnel worldwide? How do we ensure sufficient financial resources to provide everyone with access to good health? And what is needed to ensure that medicines are accessible and affordable to all?  

Based on our knowledge and experience, we influence governments and international institutions, and we work with partner organizations linking their national advocacy to the broader global changes and vice versa.    

We work, together with like-minded organizations around the world, on four themes: Access to medicines, Finance for health, Human resources for health and Dutch global health policy. Do you share our vision on the importance of health in all of our lives? And are you eager to contribute to create change through your convincing communication? Then you just might be the
