Healthcare programmes for vulnerable groups
Mission “ANTHROPOS” is a non-profit and non-governmental organisation, committed to offering treatment and medical support to people or populations in need worldwide. To this end, the organisation operates programmes and voluntary medical missions, in order to provide free medical care, knowledge and experience, as well as training for medical and paramedical staff. The activity of Mission “ANTHROPOS” in Greece consists of two programmes, the “Emvolia-zoume: Children without insurance, not without protection” and the “Stiri-zoume: Medical and Pharmaceutical care for all” programmes, which aim to secure that uninsured children receive all the vaccinations necessary and to offer medical and pharmaceutical help to financially challenged people deprived of healthcare coverage.
The John S. Latsis Public Benefit Foundation is funding core operational expenses of the Mission “ANTHROPOS” and part of its activities (100 vaccinations) for the implementation of their programmes.
During the period 2013 - 2014, the organisation, through the programme “Stiri-zoume: Medical and Pharmaceutical care for all”, responded to 142 requests based on medical needs of people aged 2 months to 90 years.
