Save the Children believes every child deserves a future. As the world’s first global charity for children for nearly 100 years, Save the Children has been committed to one goal: giving all children the best chance for the future they deserve. Their mission is to give children a healthy start in life, the opportunity to learn and protection from harm. Save the Children does whatever it takes for children – every day and in times of crisis
United Nations Sustainable Development Goal #3 : Ensure healthy lives and promote well-being for all at all ages. Significant strides have been made in increasing life expectancy and reducing some of the common killers associated with child and maternal mortality. Major progress has been made on increasing access to clean water and sanitation, reducing malaria, tuberculosis, polio and the spread of HIV/AIDS. However, many more efforts are needed to fully eradicate a wide range of diseases and address many different persistent and emerging health issues.
