By 2020 we want to

care and vaccinate 780.000 children

Children’s Health

In Sub-Saharian Africa of every 10 babies, 1 dies before 5 years old. 

The main causes are diseases which could be avoided like malaria, diarrhea and measles. To identify them they need trained healthcare workers. To guarantee children healthcare, we promote an integrated approach able to prevent and care the main diseases. 

In the health centers that we support we assure growth control, vaccinations according to the national calendar, nutritional monitoring, identification and prompt treatment of diseases.
