The challenges for prevention and healing are significant. They range from:
- the social stigma that prevents people from seeking help
- a lack of awareness in people themselves
- insufficient resources and trained professionals, and
- the lack of culturally sensitive assessments and support.
Individuals, organisations and governments are developing and implementing policies to improve the quality of services and people’s wellbeing.
Knowledge sharing is a basic human right At careif, we are dedicated to supporting people and communities to share their knowledge to improve services and change lives from England to Saudi Arabia, Bangladesh to New Zealand, the Caribbean to Africa.
We do not believe that knowledge should be only available to those with wealth or who live in urban and industrialised parts of the world. Knowledge from the less developed, rural and poorer areas of the world is equally valuable learning to the wealthier parts of the world. This reciprocity (mutually beneficial exchange) is core to the values of careif.
