Good health is the foundation on which a promising future is built. Many children miss the opportunity to reach their full potential because they lack access to proper health and nutrition.
World Vision protects children and mothers from malnutrition, tuberculosis, HIV, and AIDS by helping them have access to nutritious food, clean water, good hygiene and essential health services.
In 2016, 20,499 children in the Philippines received various health and nutrition interventions through World Vision.
How do we shield children from malnutrition and diseases?
Malnutrition is one of the leading causes of death among children under five years old. We support the government’s efforts to reduce malnutrition among children in the Philippines through targeted health and nutrition programs.
We work with communities to make sure that parents and their children are well-nourished, protected from infection and disease, and have access to clean water, basic sanitation and hygiene education. Our projects help support mothers and their children in their development at the most critical period of their growth.
