Health


According to the World Health Organization, health is a state of complete physical, mental, and social well-being. Health is not a goal in itself, but a resource in everyday life.

DEFINITION

100% for the Children aims to improve access to healthcare and sexual and reproductive health education, targeting street children, young mothers, and marginalized youth, including those with disabilities.
 
Our programs give children and young people access to fundamental knowledge about health – and especially sexual and reproductive health and rights – so that they can make informed choices now and in the future leading to fewer school drop outs, reduced teen pregnancies and economic empowerment. We also work with menstrual health, mental health for young mothers, and, not least, support for vulnerable families so that children can grow up in a loving and safe environment that ensures children’s development – physically, psychologically, and socially.

Målsætninger for sundhed

By the end 2027, 100% for the Children will:

  • Distribute menstrual cups and training to min. 40.000 girls, with 95% able to clean them without infection risk.
  • Increase partnerships on access to clean water in slums.
  • Offer infant health and caregiving training to 5000 young mothers.
  • Increase sexual and reproductive health decision-making power for women and girls.
