Together with our partners we are committed to achieve it by June 2030.
In alignment with Sustainable Development Goals, global community is working to make this vision happen by 2030.

Shifo's priority is to improve child health by strengthening health systems in low resource settings. We do it by implementing MyChild system to ensure:

Children are registered to receive health services they are entitled to and every family is empowered with right information about their child's development

Frontline health worker can provide quality health services and follow up on every child with the right tools and work processes

Key actors have access to relevant, reliable and timely information to identify and close the gaps to continuously strengthen the health system
