Why Global Health

Every year an estimated 6.9 million children die before their fifth birthday because they contract preventable and treatable illnesses like diarrhea, pneumonia and malaria.

Over half of these diseases are exacerbated by poor nutrition in the developing world. CHOP staff work to change this every day.
