HEALTH AND EDUCATION
Funds generated by the sale of gifts such as Educate a Girl and School Books enable Oxfam Ireland to undertake vital work to ensure that poor communities have access to key essential services. Our goal here is to ensure that more women and men, boys and girls will exercise their rights to quality health care and education.
We are particularly concerned with the most marginalised members of those communities such as orphans and vulnerable children and those living with HIV. When people cannot access proper health care and education services their life chances are compromised and significant constraints are placed on their ability to live healthy, productive lives and achieve their true potential.
We are working to increase access to these vital services by advocating for the availability of resources, promoting innovation in service provision and empowering poor communities to demand greater accountability from their governments on the allocation of funding for these services.
