Poverty and health are strongly linked. Health problems can plunge people into poverty or keep them from escaping it, and those in poverty are more likely to suffer disease because of lack of treatment. It’s why Children International focuses on improving health for kids.

Did you know that each year, 2 million children die from preventable diseases like diarrhea and pneumonia because families can't afford treatment?
