The UBUNTU program
- The "Protocol for detecting situations of precariousness, vulnerability and social exclusion".

- The "Psychosocial Frailty Protocol, developed by the Specialized Counseling and Support Team" in home and community interventions.
- The active participation program "The Voice of the Patient".
- The "Treatment Grants" created to prevent someone, due to lack of resources, from being left without some innovative treatment that, if necessary, is not included in the public portfolio of health services.
Ubuntu is a traditional African concept that comes from the Zulu and Xhosa languages, and constitutes an ethical rule focused on loyalty between people and relationships of fraternity and solidarity among them. It is a humanitarian principle of which they were great ambassadors to Nelson Mandela and Desmond Tutu in the reconstruction of the current South Africa.
The Ubuntu philosophy can be summarized by saying that "nobody can be happy if happiness does not reign among those around him and of which we are part"; everyone is affected by the happiness or pain of others and we can not remain indifferent.
