Ashoka Fellow
Fellow Since 2015
This description of Ana Urrutia Beaskoa's work was prepared when Ana Urrutia Beaskoa was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 2015.
Ana Urrutia is transforming the current socio-sanitary care system in Spain. Starting by removing restraints, a standard practice with outraging figures in the world, her movement has evolved towards a radical transformation of the current care model based on medical aspects and risk control, leading to dignified and humanized approach to elder’s care. Ana’s strategy focuses on changing the way care institutions work, by completely remodeling their work culture and placing the attention on the needs of the person, rather than the institution.
