Health is a key factor in breaking the cycle of poverty. Healthy mothers can raise healthy children. Healthy children can go to school, grow up to contribute to their families and become leaders of their communities.

In Canada, we have the building blocks of good health: nutritious food, clean water, sanitary living conditions and access to medical care. BUT every year, millions of mothers and children in developing countries in Africa and Asia die from preventable causes.
