Children for Health is an organisation dedicated to child-centred health education, with a unique hub of valuable information, activities, news and knowledge, developed by international development professionals and curated by health experts, that focuses on essential health education for children, families, teachers and community workers. Our resources are freely-available and intended to be used and adapted to help to save the lives of children and other people exposed to the dangers of disease and accidents or injury. We design and develop materials to be distributed both digitally and via traditional tools like books and teaching aids.
Stories for Health is a collection of children’s books that are fun and compelling for children to read, share and learn. The books are aimed at 10-14 year old readers living in the global south.
Children for Health has developed a series of posters that illustrate our work, and provide the visual starting point for rich discussions on health issues and disease, and the role that children can play in their prevention.
Children for Health develops digital content targeted at children in these communities to deliver fun, compelling and relevant health information, that helps them learn and share life-saving messages amongst their families, friends and communities.
Children for Health is in partnership with the Hanging Libraries Initiative to make children’s books available to communities in the remotest and poorest parts of the world. A comprehensive library of digital books can be downloaded, printed and stored in simple cloth hangers.
