Our promise to improve women and girls’ health
Poor health and poverty go hand-in-hand. So CARE fights poverty by improving the health of millions of the world’s poorest people – particularly women and girls. By the year 2020, we commit to helping 100 million women and girls to exercise their rights to sexual, reproductive and maternal health and a life free from violence.

Every child deserves the chance to live a healthy and secure life.
Healthy mothers, children and families are the key to a better future for everyone.
Sexual and reproductive health
Every woman and girl has the right to make her own decisions about her sexual and reproductive health.
HIV and AIDS
HIV is more than just a health problem – it feeds a vicious cycle of poverty and injustice.
Access to clean water saves lives – and frees women and girls from the daily burden of walking miles to collect water.
