About our signature programmes

Our long-term health programmes aim to help end preventable child deaths by focusing on the four key areas: Universal Health Coverage, Health System Strengthening, Innovation and Research and Global Engagement. Your funding will enable us to reduce maternal and new-born mortality in Kenya, strengthen health systems in the DRC, prevent child deaths from diseases such as pneumonia in Nigeria, strengthen routine immunisation in Ethiopia and increase access to child health and nutrition services in Yemen.

Help support Save the Children's Emergency Fund (CEF)

Save the Children's Emergency Fund (CEF) Is a pot of flexible funding used by Save's humanitarian teams to respond and support children most in need when disaster strikes.

The Emergency Fund ensures Save the Children can be ready and respond within hours of an emergency,  as well as helping communities recover faster after the event.

In 2020 alone, CEF supported 68 different emergencies in 50 countries. Employee donations to the CEF have supported children living in Wuhan during the first COVID-19 outbreak, to those affected by flooding in East Africa, to the Beirut explosion last August.

You can find out more about CEF here.

What is the programme work within the Ethiopia?

Your donation could help life-saving vaccines reach children, like six-month-old Alaziz (pictured), in some of the hardest-to-reach communities in Ethiopia, protecting them from vaccine-preventable diseases.

Since 2016, GSK and Save the Children have been working in Ethiopia to improve access to immunisation services for remote communities in the Somali Region, strengthening key areas of the health systems in this region to ensure essential vaccines are reaching the children who need them the most. By improving access to quality health services, ensuring communities understand the importance of vaccines and by developing the local government’s capacity to support and manage its vaccination programmes, we hope this will ensure that more children survive, and live full and healthy lives because they have been vaccinated. To date our partnership has contributed to the vaccination of 29,849 children under 1 and 20,033 pregnant women in Ethiopia.

What is the programme work within the Nigeria?

Your donation could help life-saving vaccines reach children in Nigeria where children are dying unnecessarily from preventable infectious diseases such as pneumonia; which is the biggest cause of child deaths worldwide, and the situation is particularly grave in Nigeria. Our flagship programme aims to drive transformational change for universal access to infectious disease prevention, protection and treatment – generating new evidence and scalable solutions to save children’s lives.

What is the programme work within the Kenya?

Your donation could prevent mothers and their children dying from preventable infections in Kenya, like Sylvia and 4-month old Brivian (pictured). Sylvia lost two of the six children to whom she has given birth. Her first-born child’s umbilical cord was infected and he died 11 days after birth. Her most recent baby, Brivian, was born in a health facility in 2017, enabling Sylvia to access chlorhexidine gel, which she applied to his umbilical cord. His cord did not get infected and healed quickly. This is more likely to happen in low-income settings across sub-Saharan Africa where more births take place at home and unsterile materials. In 2012, a United Nations (UN) Commission Report named chlorhexidine for newborn cord care as an overlooked ‘life-saving commodity’ that, if more widely accessed and properly used, could potentially save 422,000 neonatal lives over five years. Over 30,000 newborns in Kenya have so far benefitted from the new chlorhexidine gel.

What is the programme work within the Yemen?

Your donation could help us give life-saving care to mothers and their children in Yemen. Yemen is now experiencing the worst humanitarian crisis in the world, over five years of conflict and severe economic decline are driving the country to the brink of famine, exacerbating needs in all areas. Since 2014, amid mounting political instability and violence, Save the Children and GSK have been combining their collective strength to save children’s lives in Yemen. Today we are working together to strengthen health systems for mothers and their children, within health centres and community sites.

What is the programme work within the DRC?

Your donation could help life-saving vaccines reach children, like one-year old Suriya Dorcas (pictured), in some of the hardest-to-reach communities in DRC, protecting them from vaccine-preventable diseases. Our flagship programme in DRC, addresses the urgent health needs of communities, preparing and responding to emergencies and strengthening the health systems in critical and remote areas. Our goal is to contribute to the end of preventable deaths for all children under five in target health zones. We are tackling and reducing maternal, neonatal and child mortality in three health zones within the Kasai Oriental province and a health zone of the Kinshasa province.

What is the Children’s Emergency Fund?

Save the Children’s Emergency Fund helps provide vital support for children in emergencies. Your donations help Save the Children respond wherever the need is greatest, deploying teams on the ground within hours of a disaster striking and helping reach children immediately with the essentials they need to survive. Between April and June this year, the fund was used to support 13 new emergencies in 18 countries across the world. 

Your donations could provide essential shelter and hygiene kits to children like Jenny, 15, (pictured) whose home was destroyed when a powerful cyclone made landfall in Vanuatu earlier this year. It could also support children in countries like Venezuela, where the Emergency Fund has been used to support emergency health, education, nutrition and wellbeing programmes there, reaching 400,000 children.

What is Save the Children’s COVID-19 response?

Throughout the coronavirus pandemic, Save the Children have been supporting the most vulnerable children and families globally and across the UK, enabling them to stay safe, healthy and keep learning as the coronavirus crisis is hitting children hard – the most vulnerable children hardest of all. They are currently working in 114 countries, helping children who have been affected by COVID-19, while getting ready to respond in case things get worse.

With GSK support, Save the Children have been able to provide hygiene essentials, medical supplies, personal protective equipment (PPE) and information materials on hygiene for families and community health workers in countries such as Kenya and the Philippines.

GSK is also providing additional support for our partnership programmes as now, more than ever, our partnership is needed to make sure children have the chance to be safe, learn and grow up healthy and realise their full potential. Through our partnership COVID-19 Response Fund, we will ensure our current partnership programmes are fully equipped to tackle coronavirus and can support the communities we work with by continuing to provide potentially life-saving services.
