ACCESS TO CARE
Quality of care and knowledge transfer to act and make our action sustainable
Thousands of children worldwide suffer from physical health problems and are unable to receive proper medical attention due to a lack of financial resources, capacities or suitable facilities.
Since 1996, Children Action has launched several surgical projects targeting access to relevant and quality care for children in need aged 0 to 18 years.
The Foundation works alongside European medical specialists in order to ensure high quality health care as well as knowledge transfer to local medical teams.
“ The right to health includes access to timely, acceptable, and affordable health care of appropriate quality.”
