Our values


We demonstrate creative intelligence in developing new strategies, approaches, techniques, methodology, and management ideas that ensure that health service delivery becomes more effective and that communities can demand, access and use these services to improve health outcomes.


We use a systematic approach with meticulous attention to detail to break down problems, understand their root causes, and use fully inclusive and participatory brainstorming methods to generate potential solutions to the challenges presented, leaving no stone unturned.


ASKAAN welcomes and integrates all employees into the work team regardless of their differences and peculiarities. Our inclusive management approach values the professional competences of each individual and celebrates the diversity across the entire team.


We look at the whole person with respect, consideration and empathy, beyond any particular goal or moment. This helps us support each other and our clients in a more meaningful way, allowing us to optimize the delivery of health care services for the entire population.
