SanAstra Foundation aims to empower individuals and improve quality of life of patients by improving their health literacy and (digital) health literacy.
One of our ongoing projects is providing a platform of a video library of stories and experiences in the ”doctors’ office”, designed to empower both patients and health professionals and to enable experience-based knowledge.
We are working to continuously grow our diverse collection of storytelling short videos where both, patients and health professionals can share unique real-life experiences related to navigating care through a health system, specifically exploring doctor-patient relationships. Our hope is for everyone to be able to learn from and support each other, and for educators and patient organizations to be able to use our content to their benefit.

We are building partnerships on a strategic & organizational level through connecting and partnering across disciplines including academia, government, business, as well as health professionals and civil society.
We encourage shared and experience based learning between individuals, foundations and organizations with a similar mission. We aim to raise awareness of the importance of patient communication and (digital) health literacy.
