20 million American children do not have the health care or access they need and deserve. Of these 20 million children, 9 million do not have health insurance. Others face serious barriers to health care ranging from a lack of doctors in impoverished communities to limited transportation to medical providers.
Children's Health Fund (CHF) is committed to providing health care to the nation's most medically under-served children and their families through the development and support of innovative medical programs, response to public health crises, and the promotion of guaranteed access to appropriate health care for all children.
Founded in 1987 by singer/songwriter Paul Simon, and pediatrician/advocate Irwin Redlener, MD, the CHF's health projects have provided more than 1.6 million patient visits. CHF partners with major academic medical centers to deliver health care to disadvantaged children and families, via state-of-the-art mobile medical units, in both rural and urban areas across the country.
Today, The Children’s Health Fund has 22 Projects in 13 states and the District of Columbia.
