What we do

Child.org exists to spark progress in global child health. 

We do this by discovering, designing and delivering solutions that keep children alive and healthy. The work we do generates discoveries and insights that help everyone to support the health of children more effectively.

Discovery. We work to find opportunities to better help children. 

Design. We create solutions to the problems children face.

Delivery. We deliver projects - and we monitor, assess and report on the results. 

Child.org is led from our office in Nairobi, and all our work is conducted in close partnership with local communities. 

Here are some examples of projects from the Child.org incubator. Use the buttons on the right to filter by programme or type of project.

We're working with the World Health Organisation to investigate inexpensive innovations in quality of care, in the most dangerous country in the world to give birth.
  • Discovery
OverviewSierra Leone has the highest rate of maternal mortality in the world - and the 4th highest rate of child mortality. Some of the biggest problems lie in the country’s health system, which is critically underdeveloped, understaffed and under-funded. Child.org are working with the World Health Organisation (WHO) and the Department of Public Health at the University of Makeni in Sierra Leone. Together, we're investigating and testing inexpensive and sustainable innovations to quality of care that could have a big impact.
AimsWe're designing methods to assess the health needs of communities in Sierra Leone. We're collecting information that will be used by local health services, government and WHO to design, monitor and deliver improvements. Child.org will also use this data to determine which innovations and improvements we deliver next.
