Access to healthcare still isn’t a reality for millions of people and children in developing countries. Every year, over 13 million children under the age of 5 years die from illnesses which could have been avoided or treated. Everyday thousands of women die needlessly in pregnancy and childbirth and people living with HIV who need treatment get the medicines they need.
Poorer communities are most at risk of food shortage, lack of drinking water, and of a proper sanitation system and most likely to become ill.
We work with communities to build facilities and strengthen health systems which focus on integrated services for children, adolescents and women of reproductive age – focusing on health; nutrition; early childhood development; HIV and AIDS; and water, sanitation and hygiene.
