Maternal, Newborn and Child Health Programs
Thanks to your support, Save the Children keeps children healthy and thriving.
As a global leader in saving newborns, we continue to be at the forefront of worldwide efforts to end preventable child deaths with a focus on maternal, newborn and child health and nutrition as well as alleviating hunger.
Our teams have helped cut the number of children dying before age 5 by over half since 1990, saving 122 million lives.
We helped reduced by one-third the number of children stunted from malnutrition since 2000, including leading advocacy efforts for a U.S. commitment to reducing stunting among 2 million children by 2025. Today, there are 49 million fewer stunted children.
We transformed the way health care is delivered in the world’s hardest to reach places by pioneering programs that treat children close to home, so they receive lifesaving care before it’s too late.
