THE ISSUE
17,000 mothers and children die each day from preventable causes. Over half of these deaths are in areas of conflict and instability. In the world’s toughest places, too many women struggle to keep their children, and themselves, healthy.

This is unacceptable. These
deaths can be prevented.
THE PROMISE
By joining together, we can create healthy futures for all the world’s children, and women who are the backbone of their communities. Let’s work to make Canada a champion for child and maternal health in the places where it is toughest to survive.

SOMETHING CAN BE DONE
60% of Maternal Deaths
and 53% of the Deaths
of Children Under 5
Occur in Fragile Places and Dangerous Settings.
Every mother and child, in every country, has the right to a healthy life. In the world’s toughest places, conflict and poverty often push health care out-of-reach. Women lack access to pre, and post-natal care. Skilled medical assistance during birth is unattainable. Children often fail to receive treatment for disease. We must stand up for the most vulnerable and help those in situations of conflict, disaster, and instability.

A birth certificate is literally a lifesaver. Armed with proof of their origins and age, children can be protected from underage marriages and child labour, have the chance to go to school and access life-saving health services. Join us in our fight for birth registration.

Every 20 seconds, a child dies from a disease preventable by a simple vaccine.
Diarrhea, pneumonia and malaria don’t have to be fatal. With healthy diets, clean water, immunizations and treated mosquito nets, these deaths can be prevented. When sickness does hit, early detection and simple treatments like rehydration drinks can save lives. Support protection from disease for all children.

2.8 million children under 5 die every year from hunger.
How can we prevent these deaths? By allowing women to delay motherhood, avoid unintended pregnancies, and stop having children once they’ve reached their desired family size.
