HEALCANADA is a grassroots organization that works to positively transform communities in developing African countries and Canada through a holistic approach to Health, Education, community Action and Leadership development.
Based in West Vancouver, BC, HEALCANADA builds on strong, established relationships with people and organizations working on the ground to identify the most pressing needs in the most vulnerable areas. Our aim is to recognize existing strengths of these vulnerable areas using ‘appreciative inquiry’ and then use an integrated project concept of ‘Provision, Prevention and ProAction’ to develop effective strategies that make a sustainable impact and a real and lasting difference.
The right to adequate medical care, gender equality and the basic right of an education form the core of our current projects. These initiatives focus on programs that benefit and create opportunities for women and children. HEALCANADA concentrates its work in the Great Lakes region of eastern Africa.
