United Nations Global Compact
Prodie Santé’s commitment to the United Nations Global Compact (UNGC).
In September 2020, Prodie Santé decided to support the United Nations Global Compact. Conscious that a sustainable business approach participates in building a better future and promotes a fairer world economy, Prodie Santé stands with the Global Compact founding principles.
As a medical staffing agency, we are committed to supporting and promoting the principles that consolidate the UNGC and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), particularly in human rights, labour standards, and the fight against corruption.
We have been acting for more than 20 years to provide easier health access worldwide while fighting for the respect of the medical workforce’s fundamental rights.
As a new member of the UNGC, Prodie Santé has decided to get involved in the 17 SDGs proposed by the Organization, focusing his efforts on some specific goals linked to its activity. Goal 3 of the SDGs for example emphasizes the need to improve healthcare quality and access to health. Our primary mission is precise to guarantee access to medical care through our team of professionals.
To support the United Nations Global Compact initiative, Prodie Santé registered as a Gold Donor of Singapore’s Global Network. This way, the medical staffing agency endorses the UN values by financing different projects aimed at building a better world. This initiative also enables Prodie Santé to participate in the international organization’s upcoming events, meet its members, and share ideas with companies and initiatives from other sectors of activity.
Furthermore, Prodie Santé commits to publishing its “Communication on Progress (COP)” every year. This annual activity report of the company will highlight our project’s progress in its commitment to the Sustainable Development Goals. Our participation in the Global Compact represents an excellent opportunity to strengthen our will to respond to the planet’s challenges.
Access to medical care and health are universal rights. Therefore our goal
remains to provide the best professionals in all healthcare areas, whenever and wherever they are most needed.
The UNGC is a United Nations initiative launched in 2000 to encourage companies worldwide to adopt a socially responsible attitude by committing to integrating and promoting several principles relating to human rights, international labour standards, the environment, and the fight against corruption. Almost 9,500 companies from 100 countries and 3,000 non-commercial partners have signed it. By committing to the UNGC, Prodie Santé respects and follows these principles while accomplishing its mission: To provide doctors to medical institutions and overcome the international medical shortage.
We have recently been focusing on applying these principles in one of our missions: Volunteering to help Cuban doctors of the Doctor’s Reserve Association get medical pursuing their work around the world.
In our journey to help this association, but also during our many missions, we strive to integrate the SDGs daily by:
Supporting and promoting human rights
Respect for labour standards
The fight against discrimination and the promotion of equality
The fight against corruption in all its forms
The sustainable development goals endorsed by Prodie Santé in 2020
SDG 3: Health & Wellness
Prodie Santé helps the free Cuban doctors of the Doctor’s Reserve Association to find new missions since there are currently many countries that need to increase the number of doctors available to fight the pandemic. The situation forces us to have all our medical equipment and to find innovative solutions to fight against the devastating effects of COVID 19.
La Chaîne de l’Espoir is a French association that performs surgeries on more than 5,000 children in 30 different countries each year. Prodie Santé helps them find health professionals for their centres around the world, free of charge. In recent years, the team has recruited female gynaecologists to support The French Medical Institute for Mothers and Children (FMIC) in Afghanistan. In this way, we fight for access to health for hundreds of mothers and children who are in one of the most vulnerable places in the world.
We collaborate with Doctors Without Borders (MSF). The objective was to provide medical assistance in 72 countries where MSF operates impartially. This cooperation allowed us to develop coordination work to help people affected by natural disasters, epidemics, famines, armed conflicts and any other emergency situation that occurs in developed or developing countries.
SDG 3 is probably one of the founding objectives of Prodie Santé that we will continue to develop every year across all of our projects. As a medical recruitment agency, the company’s mission is to provide medical assistance where it is needed.
