Red Cross Colombia

The Colombian Red Cross is an independent and private humanitarian entity, which is a member of the International Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement. In Colombia, the CRC focuses on disaster relief, victims of conflict, health, and psychosocial prevention and assistance in the 32 departments of Colombia.

In 2005, Advantis supported the Red Cross with the necessary diagnosis to create their 5-year strategic plan. Their current situation was evaluated, key performance indicators determined and measured, and an action plan developed and validated to ensure effectiveness and execution. Advantis then continued to provide services throughout the development of the created strategic plan.
