Children’s Hospital Colorado supports the following global health programs:
Helping Babies Breathe is a program that trains birth attendants to use a few simple tools and techniques to assess a newborn’s breathing in the first “golden minute” of life. This helps determine if the baby is breathing well in order to reduce deaths.
Vaccines prevent an estimated 2.5 million deaths among children younger than age 5 every year. The Vaccine Program has a focus on research, delivery and safety monitoring systems, and vaccine-related education around the world.
Although a quarter of the world’s population is under the age of 5, half of the victims of man-made and natural disasters are children. The Pediatrics in Disasters program trains healthcare providers to better prepare for events and prioritize the care of vulnerable children.
The Center is made up of a family medical clinic, dental clinic, soon-to-be-opened birthing clinic and community home visiting program. These services provide care to children and families living in an impoverished region located southwest of Guatemala.
Children’s Hospital Colorado and the Center for Global Health send surgical teams to the Moore Pediatric Surgery Center in Guatemala City to help some of Guatemala’s most needy children.
