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.

By working on that together with local communities we use ‘health’ as a means to bring people together and to restore mutual trust.
