Health does not only mean an absence of illness. It depends a great deal on the availability and distribution of medical resources (number of doctors and nurses and access to medication) and other factors such as socio-economic and developmental ones (drinking water, sanitation and food). Taking these criteria into account the Foundation Probitas has defined the following strategic intervention lines:


To reinforce medical services and empower the population in vulnerable regions

To reinforce medical services and empower the population in vulnerable regions, by installing equipment and infrastructures for the diagnosis and treatment of prevalent diseases through the knowledge and experience of Grifols' staff and using the technology most appropriate for the relevant context.

To encourage the participation and training of the personnel

To encourage the participation and training of the personnel of each project in order to create capacity-building at a local level so that the people benefitting from the training will be those responsible for the health services of their community.

To promote integral health programmes

To promote integral health programmes such as access to drinking water, sanitation and food security in the vulnerable areas where the Foundation is already present with the objective of intervening in a transversal manner with the active participation of the community.

To reinforce the blood banks in the health centres and hospitals

To reinforce the blood banks in the health centres and hospitals of the most disadvantaged areas through the knowledge and wide experience of Grifols in this sector.

To take action in exceptional situations such as catastrophes or humanitarian crises

To take action in exceptional situations such as catastrophes or humanitarian crises of either human or natural origin.

To give support to other entities which share our objectives and values

To give support to other entities which share our objectives and values in order to reinforce and improve the structures of health centres and/or hospitals in the world's most disadvantaged regions, and to evaluate the provision and supply of consumable hospital goods and essential medication.

To encourage interventions related to health in vulnerable collectives

To encourage interventions related to health in vulnerable collectives in developed countries with the Grifols' group expertise (diseases related to blood and derivatives).
