PROVIDING ACCESS TO INTEGRATED PEDIATRIC CARE.

Having limited access to children’s health care services leads to many risk factors that increase infant mortality, cause more frequent and severe chronic diseases such as asthma, failure to thrive, lower immunization rates, increased obesity, and their complications.

Although Mexico has a public health system, the large population, tight budgets, and limited coverage, especially in cases of chronic conditions, leaves some patients vulnerable. Patients encounter challenges to accessing basic health services, let alone services for genetic disorders, serious diseases, and psychological conditions. For these families, there are few options.

The Padrino Children’s Foundation identifies, evaluates, and treats those most in need. With proper care, not only can the quality of life for individual children improve, but also of their families and whole communities.
