Non-eligibility criteria

Any projects that do not satisfy the Foundation’s main selection criteria, including:

  • All projects that fall outside the healthcare field.
  • All projects (apart from humanitarian emergencies) that do not demonstrate a partnership approach or provide lasting benefits to the people involved (e.g. short-term missions with no prospect of sustainability, individual projects, student projects, funding for specific events unrelated to a program supported by the Foundation, etc).
  • All projects that are mainly dedicated to building or rehabilitating a physical structure, or purchasing equipment.
  • All medical research projects that fall outside the Foundation’s missions. These would come under direct partnerships with the sanofi-aventis Group.
  • All structures and actions which are contrary to the ethical principles of the Foundation and to human rights in general, especially those that involve any form of proselytizing.
