1. Konbit Sante affirms that all people have the right to healthcare regardless of personal means. Furthermore, people have a fundamental right to life and liberty. We believe in the dignity of all people and in human rights. To that end, we believe that it is imperative to bear witness to, and advocate on behalf of, persons who suffer the indignity of misery.

3. Konbit Sante operates in accordance with the highest ethical standards in all relationships with its Haitian partners, donors, and the community.
