HEALTHCARE RESEARCH AND ACTION FOR THE PEOPLE WHO NEED IT MOST.
The Science for Life Foundation was born in 2016 during Pope Francis’s Extraordinary Jubilee of Mercy, to bring healthcare research and action to the people who need it most.
The Health Points pilot project gave free specialist medical services to the poor and needy in Rome, in collaboration with the Vatican, during the Jubilee for the Sick and Disabled in June 2016.
In 2017 we developed a project for the Central Italy earthquake survivors, based on telemedicine technologies: The TeleHealth Points. The solution has been designed as mobile clinics in order to provide hospital-standard support any situation where the local health system is unexpectedly overloaded.
TeleHealth Points bring vital care after natural disasters like earthquakes or floods and humanitarian emergencies like refugee crises.
Today, we’re developing new projects for both Central Africa and Balkans areas in order to establish an efficient and effective approach to healthcare through modern technologies and gender equality.
Expected outcomes of our projects include the reduction of maternal and under-five mortality rate, the increase of women’s empowerment and the reactivation of healthcare as a part of essential social services.
