Saving women and children
5.3 million children under 5 died of preventable diseases in 2018.
World Vision is joining the world to meet the United Nations Sustainable Development Goal 3: Good Health and Well-being, by working to end preventable child deaths from malnutrition, pneumonia, diarrhea, and other communicable diseases.
The first 1,000 days of a child’s life, between pregnancy and a child’s 2nd birthday, are the most crucial for development and growth. Our high impact health interventions begin for women and children at the earliest prenatal stage through things like health education, emergency supplies, and holistic medical support.
Together, we can end preventable deaths of children and mothers around the world.
