Children's Health

Focusing on High Leverage Changes

All children should be able to achieve their optimal health, but realizing this ideal is a complex challenge. To keep us aligned with the highest leverage opportunities, we focus on projects within the three areas we believe are most critical for ensuring children’s health: proactive solutions to support babies during their first days; quality care for all children and their families; and healthy living practices, policies and conditions that bridge health and healthcare.

We invite you to learn more about our work in these areas by clicking on the child health topics below. Within each topic area, you'll find:

  • Information about topic-specific challenges
  • Details and results from related our projects
  • Topic-specific resources
  • Stories from improvement projects and people in the field
