Why We Advocate for the Health and Rights of Children

Children's HeartLink is a leading global champion for the health and rights of children with heart disease. We advocate with decision-makers to assure ALL children have access to high-quality and affordable pediatric cardiac care. Our efforts focus on CREATING CHANGE in the four priority areas: increasing the pediatric cardiac capacity; building the pediatric cardiac workforce; closing the data gap, and financing pediatric cardiac care.

DRIVING POLICY CHANGE IN HEART CARE

We educate decision-makers and other key stakeholders in the countries where we are active, as well as globally—to inform government priorities, investments, strategies and policies to move the needle for children in need of heart care.

Our Work with Global Health Care Leaders

INFORMING THE WORLD ABOUT PEDIATRIC CARDIAC CARE

We drive the development and collate the latest data to inform policy for prioritizing the health and rights of children with heart disease. When the data doesn’t exist, we identify partners to generate new evidence. We advocate for pediatric cardiac care policies and lead the efforts to include these policies in best practice recommendations.

COLLABORATING WITH GLOBAL HEALTH ORGANIZATIONS

Children’s HeartLink connects people, ideas and resources to drive solutions. We always look for ways to strengthen our advocacy through effective collaboration and leveraging resources in support of a global health agenda inclusive of the needs of children with heart disease.

We engage with global organizations to encourage and support global advocacy efforts.

Children’s HeartLink is in consultative status with the United Nations Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC). We aim to be recognized as an expert who can actively engage with UN programs, funds and agencies as well as participate in events and activities.
