Take part to the #ProfoundlyHuman Movement

#ProfoundlyHuman

Because we are all concerned by healthcare.

It is essential to the development of each of us. Both a powerful force and a great shared responsibility.

Because we are all dependent on health.

It determines our ability to act. You have to have it to dare to be an entrepreneur, get involved in your community, start a family, integrate into the community, continue your studies.

Because we are all health actors.

Nous avons tous une mère à We all have a mother to accompany, a spouse to support, a colleague to comfort, a brother to help, a child to watch grow.

Because we are all winners with health.

It is our greatest collective wealth, a source of dynamism and prosperity. We must preserve it, so that we can achieve together.

Let's give him the best of ourselves.

That she can heal with this knowing look, this soothing word, this relieving gesture, this reassuring presence, this healing knowledge. That it can evolve thanks to the intelligence of the heart, the collaboration and the unique know-how of thousands of individuals mobilized around the major challenges of tomorrow. That it can expand its action and make its presence felt throughout the territory, in our homes, in our businesses and far beyond.
