The ALRA is a human rights-oriented organisation. It works in the health sector of development co-operation. The prime objective of ALRA is to combat poverty and deprivation in developing countries through structural improvement of health systems. This work for sustainable health is part of promoting economic and social development, which shall lead to processes of structural and social change, and economically and ecologically sustainable growth. ALRA acknowledges the multiple interdependencies between countries, peoples and individuals in a Globalised World. Therefore, development education in Austria is among ALRA’s priority intervention fields. The ALRA operates nationally and internationally. It works in Austria and in the recipient countries of official development assistance that are listed by the Development Assistance Committee (DAC) of the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD). In disaster and emergency cases, the activities of the ALRA can be expanded beyond the countries mentioned by the OEC
