2021 was another challenging year with many crucial developments in key areas of our global society due to the widespread pandemic, disrupting further the right to health and development for all. It was again a year of adapting to the shifting global health and development landscape while working mostly virtually.
Our annual report is an opportunity to look back and see what we achieved together and to collectively reaffirm our commitments to the right to health and development for all. The report is also our submission to the UN Global Compact, communicating our progress towards the ten key commitments and the Sustainable Development Goals for 2030.
In 2021 we marked our 31st anniversary as hera, and we successfully transitioned to a new management team. We continued to deliver high-quality services on a wide range of health and development initiatives, providing policy support, monitoring and evaluation, institutional assessments, and short- and long-term technical support. In 2021 we initiated 53 new projects in 29 countries and 24 global or multi-country initiatives.
We hope you will take a moment to visit our 2021 annual report to learn more about our work and commitments and key developments.
hera is a collective with a shared vision for a better world. We are grateful for all the work, partnership, and contributions made by our clients and consultants and hope that this is reflected in the report.
