Abundant Health – our promise to children is the global health initiative of the United Methodist Church. This initiative is led by Global Health Unit of Global Ministries.

The problem: Children are our future; yet nearly 6 million children under the age of five die every year. Millions of children and adolescents still don’t have access to the life-saving information, services and supplies they need for a healthy fulfilled life.

The goal: The United Methodist Church is working to bring better health to people in every place, from our own backyards to around the world.

The Solution: We are asking United Methodist congregations to make a promise to take action locally and globally to create a healthy society where children and adults experience abundant health.

  • We want to promote health and wholeness for all people
  • We want to address nutritional challenges and promote breastfeeding
  • We want to advance prevention and treatment of childhood diseases
  • We want to ensure safe births

As United Methodists, we are committed to creating abundant health for all, a global society of people with physical, mental, emotional and spiritual well-being.

We seek to engage churches around the world to provide services and ministries to improve children’s health, and to give to support global needs. Learn more

We are working with the United Nations initiative “Every Woman Every Child”, the Global Strategy for Women’s, Children’s and Adolescent’s Health to reach children with lifesaving interventions.
