About us


Following the recommendations put forward by the World Health Organization (WHO), published in a document entitled “Working together for health”, the Société santé en français and all Health Networks opted for a model of leadership which included the five key sectors of the pentagram. This structure allows for a more efficient networking between partners and a better consultation on engagements for the health of francophones.


The French Health Network is governed by statutes and regulations in forced by the board of Trustees. The board of trustees is composed of six members, all volunteers, representing a geographic and cultural territory and representing groups of essential partners for the improvement of the health services in French.
