FIND policies

At FIND, excellence and diversity go hand in hand.

We are committed to gender equality, including equal compensation, prevention of and protection from sexual harassment, and the safeguarding of our staff and beneficiaries. We also believe that the greater the diversity of backgrounds, cultures, perspectives, skills, and experiences, the greater our impact on global health.

As we serve vulnerable populations in support of their right to health, we demand transparency, open communication, accountability, and integrity on the part of our team and collaborators.

We are guided unconditionally by transparency, open communication, respect, accountability and integrity.
