Children for Health
Children for Health is dedicated to the promotion of health education in developing countries, focused on developing children as agents of change and communicators of essential health messages in their families and communities.
Children for Health promotes child-focused health education in developing countries. They use many channels to work with projects, programmes and people.
All their partners want the same thing – to involve and support children as ambassadors and communicators of essential health messages with their friends and in their families and communities.
This is based on two key insights:
1. That children in many communities in most countries in the world play a vital role looking after their siblings and friends, often without adult presence or supervision; and
2. That providing health information to these children in a relevant, fun and compelling way delivers immediate and lasting benefits in disease prevention and treatment in their communities.
Alongside their partners, Children for Health researches, develops, promotes and distributes health education materials for children and their educators; these are free-of-charge, child-friendly and distributed effectively and efficiently through multiple channels: print, website, video, radio, text and mobile.
