HealthProm was originally set up by UK doctors and allied professionals to promote health education and knowledge exchange with the former USSR.
Our mission now is to support vulnerable children and their families in Eastern Europe, Central Asia, Afghanistan and the United Kingdom and enable them to overcome the barriers of poverty, social exclusion or disability in order to have their right realised.
Who We Are
For 35 years HealthProm has been supporting vulnerable children, women and families in the UK, Eastern Europe, Central Asia and Afghanistan. Our unique approach to providing holistic services encompasses health, social care and education and is driven by our belief that every child should have the best start in life and has the right to appropriate care and support.
How We Work
We work in partnership with local organisations, governments and communities to develop better local services for children, women and families.
We achieve this through:
- Improving professional practice
- Strengthening families and communities
- Developing innovative services
- Advocating for policy reform
Since our foundation, we have gained significant expertise in safe childbirth, the de-institutionalisation of care, palliative care for children, support for families of children with disabilities, and inclusive education.
What We Offer
HealthProm’s extensive regional expertise, combined with access to an established network of technical specialists in the UK, Europe and Central Asia, enables us to connect parents and professionals and share best practice. We have an excellent track record of delivering innovative training programmes and participatory forum meetings, organising regional professional conferences and international study visits.
HealthProm builds local capacity, empowers local people and supports sustainable reforms. We assist local governments, professionals and civil society organisations in professional learning, strategy development, monitoring and evaluation, designing new projects and preparing funding proposals.
