Solidarite Therapeutique et Initiatives pour la Sante (Solthis)
Solthis is an international solidarity NGO dedicated to improving prevention and access to quality health care. Solthis strengthens health systems and services in the countries where it operates.
Physician-researchers at the Pitié-Salpêtrière Hospital founded Solthis in 2003. We have since operated based on a sustainable, long-term approach to address public health issues in limited-resource countries.
Solthis is comprised of committed health and development professionals who specialize in:
1. a scientific and empirical approach that seeks cost-effective solutions adapted to realities in the field
2. mobilizing multidisciplinary experts from Northern and Southern nations in order to address all dimensions of health issues: medical, social, economic, or political
Solthis bases its interventions on the principle of non-substitution: we accompany but we do not replace.
The fragility of health systems in these countries, epidemics, and the lack of human and financial resources require long-term responses. This is why we've developed an intervention strategy based on a global approach to health issues and strengthening all elements of health systems: men and women, institutions, networks, and technologies.See more
