Abundant Health – our promise to children is the global health initiative of the United Methodist Church. This initiative is led by Global Health Unit of Global Ministries.
The problem: Children are our future; yet nearly 6 million children under the age of five die every year. Millions of children and adolescents still don’t have access to the life-saving information, services and supplies they need for a healthy fulfilled life.
The goal: To reach 1 million children with lifesaving and health promoting measures by 2020.
The Solution: The United Methodist Church is working to bring better health to all children in every place —from our own backyards to around the world.
- We want to ensure safe births and good nutrition, promote wellness, improve health education and access to care. We want to save lives through prevention and treatment.
- We seek to engage churches around the world to provide services and ministries to improve children’s health, and to give to support global needs. Learn more
- We are working with the United Nations initiative “Every Woman Every Child”, the Global Strategy for Women’s, Children’s and Adolescent’s Health to reach children with lifesaving interventions.
