Who we are
Instituto Desiderata is an OSCIP (Civil Society Organization of Public Interest), which for 16 years has been focused on improving public healthcare for children and adolescents in Rio de Janeiro. We work on the prevention, early diagnosis, and treatment of cancer and other chronic non-communicable diseases and risk factors, such as childhood obesity.

In order to improve the health of children and adolescents, we map problems and join individuals, organizations, and public leaders to search for solutions. We produce social changes in the collective interest.
