Children’s health

At Terre des hommes, one of our priorities is to ensure that children and their mothers benefit from proper healthcare. As a result, we have launched a number of innovative projects in this field. They reflect our broader mission to improve access to medical care, water and sanitation in the most underprivileged communities worldwide.
