Strategic Networks

To cause social changes in the area of public healthcare for the Brazilian youth is a job that must be carried out collectively and in an integrated way. Instituto Desiderata is committed to creating and strengthening strategic partnerships united by the common goal of solving complex problems.

In order for actions to be implemented at a local level, it is necessary to join the efforts of nationally and internationally assumed commitments which address the countries’ national policies and, consequently, influence the progress of the actions in the cities and states.

Instituto Desiderata is a full member of the Union for International Cancer Control, having participated in the civil society meeting previous to the UN high-level assembly on Chronic Non-Communicable Diseases; integrates the WHO’s Global Initiative for Childhood Cancer; participated in the National Cancer Control Plans Review; and is active in the Rio de Janeiro Parliamentary Front for Facing Cancer, which discusses public policies and actions in the area.
