Global child health programmes

We help improve child health worldwide, with cost effective, high impact programmes. We work with our membership of experienced paediatricians and other child health professionals as well as partner organisations.
In the last years, we've grown significantly, expanding the scale of our work. And, we've consolidated our strategy to focus on improving quality of clinical care for children in hospitals and health centres.
We work with local partners, ministries of health and international development agencies in a wide range of low- and middle-income settings - with programmes in Rwanda, Sierra Leone and Myanmar.
As part of our commitment to train the global workforce, we run a number of UK-based global health courses. These prepare clinicians for working in low-resource settings around the world. (Our face-to-face courses are currently paused due to COVID-19.)
