Challenge

Each year 76,000 children are born in Antioquia, 760 of whom have heart conditions; nationally there are as many as 8,000 children born annually with cardiovascular conditions. The majority of these children are low socio-economic status, with little or no access to healthcare and treatment. 10 OUT OF EVERY 1000 CHILDREN SUFFER FROM CONGENITAL HEART DISEASE. 40% requiring some type of intervention. Heart diseases are responsible for 6% to 10% of global child deaths.

Solution

The Children's Cardiovascular Center in Medellin will provide comprehensive care with high scientific and human value to children with heart disease who currently have little or no access to cardiovascular surgeries.

Long-Term Impact

Life expectancy is very high, at 95 percent, for children who suffer from heart disease and are treated promptly. These children have the potential to lead normal lives, integrated in their families, schools, and social life.
