The two year project (2012-2014) was implemented by the Russian Coalition Against Poverty in collaboration with Oxfam and with the financial assistance of the European Union.
This two-year project was a continuation of the successful collaboration of Oxfam and the Coalition Against Poverty to improve access of Russian citizens to universal healthcare.
The goal of the project - to create conditions for effective implementation of the rights of Russian citizens to obtain free medical care through a constructive dialogue with the authorities, to involve the local community, as well as to educate young people about healthy lifestyles and free medical care.
The official partners of the project are the Arkhangelsk Centre of Social Technologies "Garant", the Tyumen City Development Charity Fund, and the Omsk regional public organization "Centre of development of public initiatives". The project conducted educational activities and mini-grant competitions for non-profit organizations which are members of the Coalition Against Poverty.
The Russian Coalition Against Poverty was established in 2005 and currently brings together more than 40 NGOs in Russia. The goal of the Coalition is to achieve for all Russian residents the access to quality healthcare, education, decent housing, and work, regardless of socio-economic status. The Russian Coalition Against Poverty is part of the worldwide Coalition “Global Call to Action Against Poverty” (GCAP), established in 2005, uniting the national movements of over 80 countries, including over 150 thousand people in different organizations. GCAP is the largest movement in the world, calling for the elimination of poverty and hunger, and the achievement of the Millennium Development Goals.
