1.2 billion people globally live with needlessly disabling conditions which could have been prevented or could be treated if medical care was available.  This is both a cause and consequence of poverty.
IMPACT’s partners around the world take action to prevent and treat needless disability and to meet communities’ needs for healthcare, clean water and sanitation. This frees up people to work or go to school and reduces poverty as a result.

IMPACT’s BBC Radio 4 Appeal, with Nadiya Hussain was a huge success!
