ADRA provides immunizations, clean water, sanitation, health care worker training, HIV and AIDS education, community-based health programs, and fights tobacco use to help reduce the millions that die each year—especially children—from preventable health causes.

Stifling the potential of many children and parents are HIV and AIDS, high birth and illiteracy rates, and lack of access to health care and potable water.

To combat this, ADRA establishes community-based health services and education programs. Special emphasis is placed on child survival, nutrition, sanitation, smoking cessation and prevention, HIV and AIDS, functional adult literacy, and child abuse issues. For sustainability, ADRA trains community health workers and traditional birth attendants, incorporates HIV and AIDS components into programs in all sectors, and creates linkages to government programs and resources.
