SAVE THE CHILDREN UK
Save the Children works in more than 120 countries. We save children's lives. We fight for their rights. We help them fulfil their potential. Save the Children's work on health financing started in 2005 with our documentation of the negative impact of user fees on access to healthcare for the most vulnerable. Since then, we have been strong advocates for services to be available free at the point of use and for progressive financing mechanisms to offer universal risk protection to the entire population of low-income countries.
