CARE believes that all people have the right to achieve their best possible standard of health. The countries where we work have some of the highest rates of preventable maternal and child deaths in the world.

Therefore, we aim to increase access to quality health services, including sexual and reproductive health and rights services, among humanitarian and fragile settings. We work with government officials, health providers, and community groups to support high-quality, comprehensive health education and services.

Health does not come from direct services alone – individual health is impacted by larger social and community factors. CARE works at the root of these issues, fighting with communities to transform harmful power and gender dynamics and policy barriers to create an environment that makes healthy behavior possible for everyone.
