Help children in Bolivia survive to age 5 by supporting Save the Children’s project to train health workers to diagnose and treat common childhood illnesses and promote better health practices.

Some 17,000 Bolivian children under age 5 die annually – many from preventable or treatable illnesses like diarrhea or pneumonia. While preventive health care can be planned, children’s need for curative health care is unpredictable. Save the Children's solution is to help train and equip local health workers so that they provide appropriate care. You can support our partnership with the Government of Bolivia to make lifesaving care available to rural children far from health facilities.


Save the Children provides the support and assistance the Bolivian Ministry of Health needs to train health workers to diagnose and treat common childhood illnesses. We also provide health workers with antibiotics and supplies.

Long-Term Impact

Your support will help Save the Children increase access to lifesaving care for poor children in rural Bolivia. Trained health workers and the families they serve and educate are the first line of defense when children become ill.
