San Mamés lights up with good health

Athletic Club Foundation and Anesvad Foundation join forces for another year to demand universal healthcare and raise awareness about forgotten healthcare in impoverished contexts

The San Mames stadium has been lit up in blue on the night of April 7 to claim universal healthcare and raise awareness about forgotten healthcare in impoverished contexts. The date coincides with World Health Day, a milestone that marks the birth in 1948 of the World Health Organization (WHO). Ensuring the universal, public and free nature of health systems, as well as guaranteeing their sustainability, is one of the objectives pursued by this commemoration. This objective is shared by the Anesvad Foundation and Fundazioa, which for another year have come together in favor of the health and well-being of all people.

A collaborative platform for the Right to Health

Taking advantage of the anniversary of World Health Day, several state-level organizations have joined forces to launch, which brings together knowledge and initiatives related to the defense of the Right to Health.

Among them are the Recover Foundation, Aigua per al Sahel, the Nursing College of Gipuzkoa (COEGI), the Clavel Foundation and the Anesvad Foundation itself. This collaborative website aims to amplify the messages, projects and campaigns of organizations that work for the Right to Health. It is a space for the exchange of knowledge: reports, educational materials, articles… all of this to delve into issues related to health and well-being from the perspective of human rights and sustainable development.

The ultimate goal is to generate an open and collaborative community that gives visibility to all initiatives related to health in Spain, those that fight so that universal access to health systems is not a privilege, but a right.
