Kids’ health

Few things are more important than keeping kids safe and healthy. Working together, we can protect them from hidden dangers, toxic threats and unsafe products and practices.

We all work hard to make sure the young ones in our lives and communities can grow up happy and healthy. In many ways the world is safer than it has ever been for kids — but there are still way too many avoidable risks and hidden dangers that kids face every day. Together, we can better alert parents and communities about threats to kids’ health; we can ensure everyone has access to resources that will help them keep their families safe; and we can work together around commonsense solutions.
