HealthNet TPO is a Dutch aid agency that works on health in areas disrupted by war or disasters. In these areas people are facing the immense task of rebuilding society while they suffer from poverty, diseases and the emotional consequences of conflict. We use ‘health’ as both a goal and means: the goal is to reach accessible health care for all. By working on that together with local communities we use ‘health’ as a means to bring people together and to restore mutual trust.

July 18, 2014 - We are in mourning. All of us at HealthNet TPO are deeply shocked to learn about the great loss of lives in the attack on Malaysian Airlines flight MH17. Among the passengers were some dear colleagues and friends from the world of global health and HIV/Aids. Our thoughts go out to the families and colleagues of Joep Lange en Jacqueline van Tongeren, and to all our friends at PharmAccess and the other agencies hit so hard by this gruesome act. We wish them all the strength they need.
