Providing the best health and nutrition programs to save lives
Nearly 5.6 million children die each year due to preventable and treatable causes, including 1 million babies who die on the day they are born. What's more, child malnutrition often leads to a lifetime of poor health and even death. More than 150 million children in developing countries are malnourished.
That's why we are committed to providing effective children’s health and nutrition programs that save children's lives and ensure they grow up healthy.
Thanks to generous donors like you, Save the Children is able to improve maternal, newborn and child health, help end child malnutrition and hunger and prevent HIV transmission, and ensure treatment for those living with HIV before they develop (or to prevent) AIDS — giving 157 million children a healthy start in life and helping 56.3 million children directly with lifesaving care, medicines, preventive treatments and so much more.
How Our Health and Nutrition Work Saves Lives:
Targeting the major causes of maternal, newborn and child deaths
Providing high-impact, low-cost care that saves children's lives
Training and equipping frontline health workers to provide basic and lifesaving care
Responding rapidly during emergencies – when children are most vulnerable
Thank you for your generous support of Save the Children!
