Organization Code of Ethics and Policies

With the drafting and adoption of the Code of Ethics, LHSI aims to clearly explain the model of organizational responsibility that it pursues in the performance of its activities, in internal relations and in relations with the different stakeholders. This is in order to orient their own action and that of their collaborators according to a perspective of ethics and the prevention of illegal and irresponsible conduct. This document, approved by the Board of LHSI, declines the ethical principles that must guide the actions of the members, staff, service providers; it also establishes indications and commitments of behavior expected by the entire organization, by those who work there and by those who collaborate with it at a general level and in the different areas of intervention. These principles, indications and commitments of behavior are assumed to supplement the ethical constraints of the different professionalisms operating, the regulatory provisions in force and the contractual agreements established.
