At DEC we focus on improving both the supply and demand of health services, tackling social barriers, engaging a range of health service providers including government, private sector as well as empowering health rights holders to hold service providers to account while recognizing that government is the duty-bearer in the provision of health care and articulation of health policy.

04. Livelihood

At DEC we recorginize that in order to succeed in our mission, we must ensure that people leaving in poverty can meet their basic food needs and that their livelihoods are secure from environment shocks. In doing this, our interventions focus on fixing on the long-term progress and well-being of our communities. To achieve this, our actions and programs focus on improving food security, fostering resilience to climate change, skills development, financial and enterprise development to women and youth.
