Over Damiaanactie

Damiaanactie is een Belgische medische non-profitorganisatie die sinds 1964 actief is en aanwezig is in 14 landen. In Brussel steunt Damiaanactie het project BELTA, waarmee dakloze tuberculosepatiënten tijdens hun moeilijke langdurige behandeling gehuisvest kunnen worden. Het is de missie van Damiaanactie om mensen te helpen die lijden aan lepra, tuberculose en andere besmettelijke ziekten zoals leishmaniasis. De organisatie doet dit door de toegang tot de gezondheidszorg te maximaliseren via opleiding van plaatselijk personeel, onderzoek en gerichte medische activiteiten. Ook werkt de organisatie aan bewustmaking en voorlichting, vergemakkelijkt ze de revalidatie van patiënten, bestrijdt ze het stigma dat aan deze ziekten kleeft en stelt ze alle daarvoor benodigde middelen ter beschikking. Wereldwijd werken er meer dan 1000 mensen voor Damiaanactie, waarvan 38 specifiek in België.
