Global Health & Child Survival


Good health and well-being are central building blocks in fighting poverty and in ensuring sustainable development. Prior to the pandemic, significant improvements were being made to improve health systems, but the strain of COVID-19 has caused setbacks and opened our eyes to the need for greater preparedness in public services.  

  • In lower-income countries an estimated 500 million days of school per year are lost due to sickness. 
  • 94% of all maternal deaths are in low- and lower-middle income countries, and over 55% of countries have fewer than 40 nurses and midwifery staff per 10,000 people. 
  • Heart disease, stroke, cancer, diabetes and other noncommunicable diseases account for 70% of all deaths worldwide. 

The good news is our charity partners listed below are working to ensure that people of all ages can lead happy, healthy lives. Programs to improve global health include reducing inequities, combatting preventable diseases, and increasing access to quality medical facilities and treatments, prenatal and infant care, mental health services, community health worker training and more.
