Thousands of children living in urban slums and rural villages are living in substandard health conditions with no or little access to medical care. Maternal and early childhood care can be scant and sporadic at best with the closest hospital a fair distance away. Access to vaccinations, vitamins de-worming and other basic health services are not readily available. The results are tragic: preventable illness, injury and death among mothers, infants and children from disease, flu and diarrhea.
