Providing health and social assistance to victims of conflicts and crises is a top priority for MAGNA. Suffering from infectious diseases that are neglected by local governments is another major area of MAGNA's program focus. We aim to provide adequate treatment and care to people affected by diseases such as HIV / AIDS, malaria, cholera and others. It also responds to the needs of people who are excluded from access to basic health services and we also help disaster victims. MAGNA's decision to intervene in times of crisis is based solely on our independent assessment and needs of people, never on political, economic or religious interests. Projects are described in detail before they start and are evaluated throughout their duration. Clearly defined quantitative as well as qualitative targets are revised where necessary. The duration of our intervention is determined solely on the basis of these needs, which are defined and reviewed during the mission. Projects and needs are assessed on an ongoing basis through a standardized data collection system, plus ongoing studies. MAGNA is committed to ensuring that its addressees actually receive its assistance. For this reason, we insist that our field workers must have access to healthcare facilities, communicate with people on the spot, and therefore independently assess the need for assistance. MAGNA implements and operates projects on its own. In rare cases, we can also provide financial support to other humanitarian organizations, community groups, or healthcare facilities that we work with in a particular area.
