Healthcare

We focus on good nutrition, protection from infection and disease, and access to essential health services to help children and their families live healthy and long lives.

Every child deserves a chance. But still too many children die needlessly from preventable causes like diarrhoea, malaria, measles and neo-natal issues.

Ensuring the most vulnerable have access to healthcare services

Ensuring the most vulnerable have access to healthcare services
Empowerment to families: through education and lasting behavioural change to champion positive attitudes and behaviours towards preventative health practices, good habits and the eradication of culturally-embedded stigma surrounding diseases like HIV.

Technology leverage: to boost health and nutrition outcomes, providing distance learning, collecting data, and connecting communities with healthcare workers.

Life-saving support: in partnership with government authorities & other partner agencies extending reach and impact of response during emergencies and situations of food insecurity, or when healthcare access is limited.

We provide proven, cost-effective health and nutrition interventions to improve the lives of women and children. We work with communities to protect children and their families from infection and disease.

 PACIFIC


We're training locals about healthcare in the Pacific
When the climate is tipped out of balance, families in the Pacific bear the brunt. Droughts ruin crops, food becomes scarce, and children become malnourished.

And because so many of these islands are remote and isolated, healthcare centres aren’t always handy. Often, they’re hours away –think a boat ride followed by a truck ride – and on sometimes challenging seas and roads.

We’re working with communities to bring healthcare closer, by training locals about healthcare, sanitation, and nutrition, and partnering with local health centres to raise awareness.

 ASIA

We are providing healthcare services in Asia
For women and young children in Asia, surviving childbirth, and the first five years of life, is no mean feat.

Mums in this part of the world are much more likely to die while giving birth to their babies than mums living in the developed world. Every day there are 830 maternal deaths – 180 of them are from Southern Asia, compared to 5 in developed countries. 

More than 30% of children in South East Asia are stunted, which is the highest in the world.  

We're working with communities to turn these numbers around, by getting basic medicines, nutritional support, and education to mums and their communities.

 AFRICA


We are training health professionals in Africa
Less than half of people in Africa have access to healthcare facilities, and many healthcare professionals don’t have the tools they need to do their jobs.

Combined with a lack of clean water, hygiene and nutrition education, diseases like malaria and diarrhoea spread quickly and go untreated.

We’re working to get communities immunised, and to make mums and their children healthier by training locals in health and nutrition.

Good health is the foundation of a child’s life! Access to essential services, vaccinations, medical clinics and training in disease prevention provide stronger health, for children and their communities.
