Blue Ventures’ mission is to rebuild tropical fisheries with coastal communities. We work in places that are home to globally important marine life and some of the world’s most vulnerable coastal populations. Blue Ventures’ health programme aims to improve access to health and family planning services for people living in Madagascar’s isolated coastal regions – some of the most underserved populations in the world when it comes to healthcare due to geographical remoteness, weak health care infrastructure and limited access to transport. We have tested, developed and promoted a holistic Health-Environment approach, improving the health of communities by integrating health services with community-led sustainable fisheries management. By demonstrating that effective marine conservation is in everyone’s interest, we are striving for impact at scale.
