Focus On Children and Families - GIH Skip Navigation

Children and Families

There is much work to be done to ensure that every child has a bright future. Health philanthropy is interested in a broad array of issues affecting the health and wellness of children and their families, from the perinatal period to early childhood, through the school-aged years, and on into adulthood. GIH designs programming that highlights the unmet needs of children and families as well as philanthropic strategies to address those needs.
