    Many vulnerable people in Asia – especially women and children – face difficulty in accessing basic health services. This is often due to the lack of hospitals, health personnel and essential medicine.

    CWS mobilizes its resources to provide life-saving interventions in response to the health needs of high-risk communities. Primary health care efforts support families affected by disasters – including refugees, internally displaced persons, host communities and returnees. Prevention and awareness are central to saving lives, combating diseases and preventing major outbreaks and epidemics.

    In addition, we believe that by responding to the health needs of disaster-affected communities, families are better able to address their other needs and rights – including education. Education builds the capacity of children, youth and adults to fully understand their rights and opportunities.
