They believe that good health and access to healthcare are fundamental human rights. The overall goal of our health programme is to improve the health of the world’s poorest people and ensure that they have access to food. Their work is guided by a health policy. For the most part, they work on improving health through primary healthcare in emergency, rehabilitation and development situations specifically focusing on the following three areas: Maternal, neonatal and child health; Nutrition; Water and sanitation. The main aim of Concern health programme is to reduce mortality and morbidity rates. They plan to do this by supporting the development of sustainable healthcare systems in the areas where they work. With the exception of emergencies, Concern does not directly deliver health services. Instead, they support the capacity of ministries of health and other partners to do so.
