Wemos was founded 40 years ago by a group of Dutch medical students who believed that medical interventions in low- and middle-income countries (LIMCs) can be effective only if the underlying causes of health problems are addressed. Since then, they have acquired an international reputation for a rights-based and systemic approach to health. Wemos targets policy-makers and politicians, but also reach out to the public at large.

Wemos believes in using their knowledge base to build bridges, raise awareness of urgent health issues among policy-makers both in the Netherlands and abroad, and strengthen the voices of partner organisations and those without easy access to healthcare.
