Who are we?

AEDES, the European Agency for Development and Health, is a private consulting company specialised in public health. AEDES area of expertise covers all sectors of health, as well as a specialised niche in information systems for food security, which AEDES contributed modelling through various projects implemented since the 80s.

Created in 1985, AEDES has become the leader of a group of organisations comprising a Foundation [www.fondation-aedes.org], recognised as a public utility charity in Belgium and a limited company GEMELLI [www.gemelli.be] specialised in hospital management in Europe.

AEDES has thus become a major actor in the field of public health, in Europe as well as in low and medium income countries.
