Social inclusion refers to social integration, social harmony and social justice, conditions that are contingent upon the implementation and enforcement of measures designed to ensure that all members of a society have an equal opportunity to participate in every facet of its social life (economic, legal, political or cultural as well as others).
/ / / Médicos del Mundo operates 28 projects in 12 of Spain’s autonomous communities that offer assistance to more than 20,000 individuals who suffer some form of social exclusion.
To combat disease, including the scourge of injustice, we must stir public opinion to a new level of awareness of the problems around us and mobilise all members of our society in support of our work.
/ / / Our organisation’s legitimacy rests on the work we do with people whose health is affected by their social exclusion or poverty. Nevertheless, our capacity to exert a positive influence and have an impact - essential for contributing to the eradication of social injustice – comes from community support.
