deploy funds and investigate proposals for consolidating and expanding
activities. The directors encourage local "ownership". STACC relies on
local coordinators, who negotiate with government officials, recruit
health workers and administer working routines. The directors do not
receive any form of remuneration.

Equality and diversity
Although STACC has no employees at home or abroad, equality and
diversity apply in the appointment of Directors. STACC will always
encourage the administrators of the health centres it supports in
Africa to develop equality and diversity policies where these are not
already in place. STACC will support the administrators to ensure that
job applicants and those already in post are aware that equality and
diversity practice helps all employees, full or part time, to know they
are valued, respected, and are free from discrimination. STACC will
from time to time review reports from administrators about the
implementation and impact of equality and diversity.
STACC’s Board of Directors places the safeguarding of children as a
matter of the highest priority. Children presenting for diagnosis or
treatment must not be exposed to cruelty, abuse or any form of physical
or mental maltreatment. STACC requires that the health centres it
supports in Africa will adhere to this approach. The Board expects that
all those caring for children will report at once to the health centre
administrator if any form of child abuse is suspected.
