The Sextant Foundation

Innovation at the intersection of human and environmental health


Sextant Foundation


The Sextant Foundation was founded to explore and develop strategies connecting engineering and innovation at the intersection of human and environmental health. Mazzetti launched Sextant, a US-based 501(c)3 organization, in 2014. Its purpose is the pursuit of funding and performing non-profit sustainable development projects, primarily in healthcare facilities in the developing world. Its mission is also research-driven, particularly in the application of Reverse Innovation to explore and disseminate a new paradigm for International Best Practice in facility design coming, not necessarily from abundance, but often, from scarcity.

Our Mission:

To bend the design paradigm and to use evidence so gathered to move the regulatory community in the US, as well as in other places.
