Launching in 2009, Child Health Now is World Vision’s first global campaign. It set out to mobilise the public and call on world leaders to take action to reduce the number of children dying before their fifth birthday from wholly preventable causes.
Over the course of the campaign, World Vision has seen activity take place across the globe, with over 30 million actions taken and with dedicated campaigns running in more than 40 countries. It is helping connect grassroots communities with national and global leaders, and is providing opportunities for them to voice their concerns and asks.
Working in partnership has been a key theme of the campaign. Through this we have worked with communities to improve the well-being and health of children, and aligned with other organisations to have a greater impact. We’ve worked in collaboration with global bodies like the United Nations, the World Health Organisation and World Bank and we’re proud to be part of the “Every Woman, Every Child” movement to end preventable maternal, newborn and child deaths,
As the campaign moves into a new phase we are working to ensure that all the results achieved to date will act as a strong foundation for long-term work that continues to gain ground in achieving the best possible outcomes around nutrition and health for children.
