About us

Dianova is an international NGO composed of third sector foundations and associations operating on 3 continents. The Dianova Network contributes to the development of people, communities and organizations through different programmes and interventions in the social and humanitarian fields.


The Dianova Network was officially created in 1998, on the foundations of the “Patriarch”, an association which had failed to come to grips with the new challenges of substance abuse treatment. After an important modernization process, all Dianova facilities are now officially recognized and integrated in local networks.

Mission, Vision and Values

Dianova is committed to respecting the fundamental rights, dignity and worth of all individuals. All services users must in particular be treated with dignity and consideration and receive support according to their needs and expectations.

Strategy 2020

Since its inception, the Dianova network has been committed to an ongoing process of modernization to increase its capacity to counter new and emerging challenges while keeping with its fundamentals. With these objectives in mind, a strategic plan has been defined every 4 years, the last one starting in 2016.
