Caring: We care about each Friend (client) we serve at IDI; we aim to be responsive, kind and patient at all times. We are supportive in the face of stigma. We care about others we serve outside IDI through our training, research and outreach activities. We care for each other as staff of IDI.

Integrity: We are fair and honest in all interactions. We are truthful. We seek to adhere to the highest ethical and scientific standards and conduct.

Excellence: We are proud to be part of a high quality institute and we strive for excellence in all we do. We are hardworking and have a passion for continuous quality improvement. We are productive and strive for useful results from our efforts.

Innovation: We are constantly looking for ways to innovate and improve. We embrace change as an opportunity, rather than fear it as a source of anxiety or extra work.

Teamwork: We support each other to achieve the IDI objectives. We communicate actively and openly. We are reliable and loyal to each other, and we build trust by honouring our commitments. We show respect for ourselves and each other, and are considerate. We value each other’s strengths. We extend these values to our relations with the partners of IDI.

Accountability: We accept our responsibilities and try hard to achieve those things for which we are accountable.
