FairMed is based in Bern and work together with a board of trustees and a board of control. Their country offices in Cameroon, the Central African Republic, India, Sri Lanka and Nepal are staffed exclusively by locals. They fund their projects with donations and bequests from private individuals and contributions from institutions.
FAIRMED is a foundation that has emerged from the leprosy aid Emmaus Switzerland. Since 1959, she has given poor people a fair access to health. For a long time, we have been supporting people suffering from various diseases and improving their health situation together with them. Our vision is a world where no one is suffering from leprosy and other poverty-related diseases and is discriminated against because of illness or disability. FAIRMED focuses its resources on the African and Asian continents.
Partners and networks
The work of FAIRMED is supported by cooperating partners and sponsoring institutions. FAIRMED contributes to the international exchange of knowledge through participation in networks of non-governmental organizations.
They deploy donated funds purposefully and efficiently. Donors can count on more than just their word: independent Swiss monitoring authorities review their finances and evaluate their integrity on an annual basis. They also disclose all of their expenditures in their annual reports.
They go to the ends of the earth for sick people. Since 1959, they have been committed to ensuring that nobody has to suffer or die from a curable disease.
