1. General Introduction

1.1. Siloe Group LLC, from this moment, referred to as (Siloe Healthcare) is a private-for-profit organization dedicated to serving people worldwide in different subjects all related to the public health practice and healthcare in general.

1.2 As an organization founded on solid Christian Catholic values[1], it comprises health as a state of wellbeing spiritually, physically, mentally, and socially, therefore it considers all these aspects in every interaction with both employees, team members, contractors, and clients.

1.3 Therefore we believe in profound respect of life as a gift from God that only He can give and take, as well as profound respect of the dignity of the human body as the temple of the Holy Spirit, these practices as well as the recognition of the presence of Jesus in every other person, guide our principles of work.

1.4 We believe in the right of conscientious objection as a human right of each one of our members; therefore, we believe they should have the freedom to act according to their individual religion and other forms of conscience.

1.5 For this matter, a set of dispositions have been settled to guarantee the correct communication between parts and the understanding of the ethical values we held as an organization.

2. Practices we do not perform as an organization

2.1 Medical Writing on behalf of other investigators: We do not write content or collaborate on scientific manuscripts which will be presented to be written or elaborated by someone else, this provides false information. We do collaborate with organizations that can present materials elaborated from us as being from the organization, as they take ownership of the work after it is produced and an organization can include other persons, but no person can include others as himself.[2]

3. Medical Subjects we do not support or collaborate with as an organization

3.1 Contraceptive Use: We do not support any project that promotes, informs, or does any sort of proposition of contraceptive drugs to the population.[3]

Therefore, we do not promote vaccines commercial versions linked to these practices, or vaccines that only offer commercial versions related to abortion as alternatives, this is the case for vaccines for Chickenpox, Measles/Mumps/Rubella, MMR + Chickenpox, Shingles, Ebola (in development) and HIV (in development).

3.4 Differences from Biological Sex: We only support the medical distinction of biological sex, being male and female. Therefore, we do not take part or collaborate on project sections that promote the use of gender, or other multiple forms of identification different from biological sex.
