"Our vision is a world where every person has access to healthcare and is treated with dignity."
It is our wish that all people - regardless of origin, gender and orientation - receive such good medical care that they can lead a self-determined and good life. Because so much more than personal well-being depends on health. For us, health is a human right.
For years, our parent company, Artemed SE, and its clinics have done their part to improve the situation through donations to other charitable organisations and one-off relief efforts. However, the desire for strategic, long-term and sustainable aid grew more and more, so that finally in 2012 a foundation of its own was established - the Artemed Stiftung.
Every day, the Artemed clinics and homes help hundreds of people to become healthy according to the latest scientific findings. A privilege that is out of reach for around two billion people worldwide. We therefore see it as our mission to bring healthcare to places that have so far been excluded from it, within the scope of our possibilities.
Relief of pain and treatment of acute illnesses are the first priority in order to provide our patients with fast and close help to recover.
Imparting knowledge and education
We want to provide such good education in our projects that everyone can take care of themselves to be as healthy as possible.
Infrastructure and technical requirements are often the basis for enabling medical care. Therefore, we address all areas that guarantee sound care.
Social Development Goals der Vereinten Nationen
17 Ziele haben sich die Vereinten Nationen gesetzt, um weltweit die nachhaltige Entwicklung auf ökonomischer, ökologischer und sozialer Ebene voranzutreiben. Die Social Development Goals (SDGs) nehmen sich dabei auch die Gesundheit aller vor. „Ein gesundes Leben für alle Menschen jeden Alters gewährleisten und ihr Wohlergehen fördern“, so wird das Ziel definiert und genau hier setzt auch die Artemed Stiftung an.
Durch die Förderung des Zugangs zu allgemeiner Gesundheitsversorgung für alle Patient:innen in den Projektländern Bolivien, Myanmar und Tansania und im Speziellen die Gesundheit von Müttern, Neugeborenen und Kindern setzt die Artemed Stiftung mit ihrer Arbeit einen wichtigen Grundstein, um die Zieldefinition der Vereinten Nationen wahr werden zu lassen.

The work in the projects is comprehensive. We are not only confronted with medical challenges, we also repeatedly encounter problems of a technical nature on site. Over the years, advisory committees have been formed that find solutions to acute problems across projects, create medical and technical standards and work out work instructions.
We show transparency
There are no uniform publication obligations for non-profit organisations in Germany. However, on the initiative of Transparency Deutschland e. V., numerous actors from civil society and academia have defined basic points that every civil society organisation should make accessible to the public.
We are responding to this call because, as a fundraising organisation, we consider it our duty to tell the community what goals we are aiming for, where the funds come from, how they are used and who the decision-makers are. We signed a corresponding self-commitment declaration (PDF) on 8.1.2014.
