In Hindi, Ahimsa means respect for life.

Ahimsa is a bridge between cultures, an attitude that teaches us to have the same respect
for someone else’s culture as we have for our own
.” (Mahatma Gandhi)
The world has become one marketplace and the marketplace has become one world. No longer are there such things as developed nations or developing nations. 

Because globalization is changing the geopolitical landscape, our vocabulary has to change as well. No longer are there wealthy countries and poor countries; today, there are wealthy people and poor people in every country around the world. The gap between the haves and the have-nots is getting wider. We must bridge this gap. Convinced that health is an important factor in the development of communities, Ahimsa Partners has chosen to draw on the 30 years of experience of its founder to become one of the key players in public health diplomacy.

In today’s world, health issues transcend national borders and require global action.”

The number of stakeholders is larger than before, and no longer do diplomats just talk to other diplomats. They need to interact with the private sector, nongovernmental organizations, foundations, civil society, scientists, political systems and the media.

Over the last 10 years, Ahimsa has built a network of Global Health stakeholders, that have reflected together in quest of profitable, accessible and sustainable economic models. They must enable new partnerships to be developed, linking what have been separate silos, creating new bridges and new models that go beyond cultural differences and promote real skills, with a single objective: making good health contagious and accessible for the most underprivileged populations. 

As Socrates once said, “Impart to others that virtue which they have themselves”.
