Center for Global Health
Throughout the world there are children becoming sick and dying of preventable diseases. These children have the same hopes and dreams as children in our communities and in our state. But because of where they were born they do not have access to the same quality of care that is provided at Connecticut Children’s.
Many lives can be saved by addressing limitations in perinatal care, endemic malnutrition, limited or no access to clean drinking water, lack of immunizations, and limited availability of medicines and medical equipment. Childhood mortality rates can be lowered by working with local healthcare providers to augment the available medical training and institute sustainable “train-the-trainer models” in order to improve the care provided.
