Child Health Now Global Week of Action: Count me in – I want children to Survive 5!

When people raise their hands and ask for change, change happens.

Historic examples like the civil rights movement, Nelson Mandela and apartheid in South Africa, Mahatma Gandhi in India prove this, but change simply isn’t happening fast enough. 

Children and women around the world are still dying needlessly; leaders need to know their citizens care.

This is why we need your help. The more people involved in the our Global Week of Action's events, the easier it will be for world leaders to see there is a real desire for change – we are calling for people across the globe to take one simple action to raise their hands so that children can Survive 5!

Ways you can take action:

  • Upload your photo to our photo wall
    Take a photo of you raising your hands and join thousands of people around the globe campaigning for change. And involve as many people as you can! We’ll use your photos to urge world leaders around the globe to honour their promise to improve maternal and child health.

  • Sign our Survive 5 global pledge and call on world leaders to follow through on the international commitments to improve maternal, newborn and child health.

  • Join our Hands up for health with Hi-5 event in Melbourne! Bring the kids for a fun family day out and join Hi-5 in raising your hands for child health. 

  • Buy a World Vision gift that supports infant and child healthcare.
