EMERGENCY USA believes access to medical treatment is a basic and inalienable human right.
EMERGENCY USA supports the implementation of medical projects according to the principles of equality, quality and social responsibility:
• Equality: Every human being has the right to medical treatment regardless of economic and social condition, gender, race, language, religion and opinions. Standards of health care, set by the progress of medical knowledge, should be delivered equally and without discrimination.
• Quality: Quality systems are based on a community’s needs, are up to date with the achievements of medical science, and not oriented, shaped or determined by lobbies and corporations involved in the health industry. Quality systems strengthen and generate human and material resources.
• Social Responsibility: Governments should prioritize the health and well being of their citizens and allocate adequate human and financial resources. The services provided by health systems and humanitarian projects in the health sector must be free of charge for all.
