Our vision is a world where people collaborate from business, public and NGO sectors so children no longer die from preventable causes through lack of access to simple medicines and the knowledge of how to use them.
To build novel partnerships to alleviate poverty and improve health in the developing world through innovation.
- Reduce child mortality in developing countries (= UN Millennium Development Goal #4)
- Promote global partnerships for development especially to provide access to affordable, essential drugs in developing countries (part of UN Millennium Development Goal #8)
- To reduce the mortality in children under the age of five from simple causes such as dehydration from diarrhoea
- To improve mothers’ health and their knowledge of health issues
