What We Do

Children’s Healthcare

Children deserve quality healthcare.

Children need proper medical care to survive and thrive.

But half of the world still lacks access to essential healthcare. Emergency medicine, surgery, primary care and other forms of healthcare are out of reach for millions of children and their families, simply because they are born into poverty or remote communities.

As a result:

  • A child under five dies every 7 seconds
  • Newborns represent nearly half of all child deaths

But there is hope.

The health issues faced by children in low and middle-income communities are often solvable if healthcare systems have the right resources. 

Because of this, we believe that together we can make essential children’s healthcare available to millions of kids.

Christian Health Service Corps provides and supports quality essential care for children in over 30 hospitals around the world.


In 2023, CHSC supported the care of over 650,000 patients, including 23,827 hospitalized children.

CHSC Provides:

Newborn Intensive Care

CHSC provides lifesaving care for children born prematurely or with infections, who would otherwise have little chance of survival. We work primarily in locations where quality neonatal care is sparse or nonexistent. Our quality improvement team also assists hospitals with process and training to save more newborns each year.

Care for malnourshed children

More than half the nearly 6 million children who die before the age of five annually are malnourished. Malnourished children often suffer from additional issues like anemia and damaged immune systems. CHSC’s malnutrition treatment programs receive hundreds of critically ill children from communities in Congo and Mexico. These children are often so malnourished they are unable to stand, walk or eat.

Rheumatic Heart Disease treatement

When strep throat infections go untreated, children can develop a chronic infection that causes heart disease and often becomes lethal later in life. We identify heart disease in school-age children using trained local screeners. We then provide the needed treatment, from antibiotics to surgery.

Surgery for children

Access to pediatric surgery is severely limited in most of the communities we serve. We provide critical surgical care for children in areas with very few or no other pediatric surgeons. Our pediatric surgeons often serve as faculty for established residency programs training national providers.
