The My Child Matters Nursing awards have supported nursing projects in 22 countries in 2 WHO regions. Overall, the My Child Matters Programme supported over 116 projects with a total funding of EUR 7’798’699 and trained 41’348 healthcare professionals. To date, it has supported more than 140’752 children and their families globally.

My Child Matters Programme overall is the cornerstone initiative of Foundation S – The Sanofi Collective.

It will be further expanded to support the World Health Organization’s (WHO) objective of achieving at least 60% survival for all children with cancer by 2030.
