We believe that we all have the right to good nutrition and healthcare. Tackling health issues is absolutely vital in the fight against hunger and extreme poverty. Many people living in poverty regularly experience health problems.

Whether it's preventing malaria, treating malnutrition, making childbirth safer or helping people living with HIV & AIDS, our health programmes are making a vital difference in some of the world's poorest countries. Last year, we directly and indirectly helped to improve the health of approximately 10.2 million people. Over six million were female.

A gift of Mosquito Net (€10) can help protect vulnerable children from malaria or a Safe Birth Kit (€20) could help a mother to have a safe and more hygienic birth.
