Health and Hygiene
World Vision’s Response
World Vision helps bring medical care and increased understanding of health, nutrition and hygiene to children and families in need through:
Emergency medical care
Medical supplies—World Vision helps facilitate emergency care by providing hospitals and clinics with top-quality medicines, equipment and supplies.
Hygiene—Community programs teach the importance of personal hygiene in preventing disease.
Nutrition—World Vision volunteers and staff train parents on the critical role that proper nutrients play in the diets of growing children.
Access to health resources

Hygiene supplies—Families in need are given essential supplies like soap, shampoo and toothpaste to help stave off serious diseases.
Advocacy—World Vision works at global and national levels to achieve policy improvements for health reform.
