Global Pediatrics Program

The Global Pediatrics Program began seven years ago as a response to the question “What role should the Department of Medicine at Boston Children’s Hospital play in the emerging global fight for children’s health and social equity?” Our answer has been to join an ever-increasing network of global child health providers, government agencies, community members and families who are committed to achieving better health for the world’s children. Together with our partners, we have built service, training, research and advocacy programs that increase capacity, improve quality and ensure positive health and developmental outcomes in the sites where we work. We also share our experience widely through participation in global forums, on-site and virtual educational programs, publications and presentations.
