The overall goal of this project is to support Helen Keller International (HKI) to deliver essential health services through Child Health Days to support countries to transition towards institutionalized Child Health Days programs for infants 6-11 months and children 12-59 months in Africa. Through this initiative HKI aims to accelerate efforts through global programming to both close gaps in coverage and strengthen national health systems to improve overall delivery, coverage and quality of evidence-based high impact interventions to reduce child mortality and morbidity.
