Policies and Duty of Care
Duty of Care & Safeguarding
EngenderHealth has developed a duty of care framework and a series of safeguarding and related policies to help build a broad culture within the organization that addresses the safety, security, and well-being of our employees. EngenderHealth takes very seriously our responsibility to make sure our staff, operations, and programs do no harm to children or vulnerable adults, including not exposing them to abuse or exploitation. To live into this responsibility, we have developed an appropriate safeguarding system and leadership in support of our zero tolerance policy regarding all types of misconduct.
Details about important policies and frameworks that make up our system of safeguards can be found via the following links:
EngenderHealth is committed to high standards of ethics and integrity throughout all operations, including the prohibition of actions that would support trafficking in persons and procedures to prevent such acts and report any violations. Read the full policy in English or French.
