Society for Equal Health & Rights (SEQHER) is a non-governmental organization that is sensitive to the plight of inequality in our society and working effortlessly to address the systematic gaps to foster an inclusive and just society. SEQHER has four strategic goals that drive and shape the work we do, namely: LGBTIQ+ community strengthening, economic empowerment of the marginalized and    vulnerable groups, change-driven advocacy, positive living and good mental state of the LGBTIQ+ individuals. SEQHER is flexible to the implementation of the fundamental needs, that are ordinarily not easily attained by the marginalized groups in the society such as humanitarian services.
