UNITUS was established in 2000 with goals to decrease the prevalence of socially significant diseases, support and protect the rights of vulnerable groups, and mobilize the efforts of public and state organizations in the Mykolayiv, Ukraine region to increase the capacity of health in development. Past projects we’ve implemented have been funded with the help of organizations such as UNICEF, Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, and Alliance for Public Health.
By creating a coalition of local NGOs and government agencies, we’ve built a network of medical and social services made accessible to at risk populations. UNITUS continues to develop this coalition today, and strives to provide sustainable, high quality support to vulnerable populations.
