About the Fund
The primary mission of the Endowment Fund for Children’s Health is to support research and education in the field of health care for mothers and their children. In particular, the participation of Czech doctors in specialized congresses, conferences and internships abroad brings the world’s knowledge into our practice. Public funds for the purposes of research and education in the field of health care are very limited in this country, so financial support from private sources is essential for these purposes. In addition to supporting research and education, the endowment fund also helps finance the necessary instrumentation for health care facilities that provide care for mothers and children.

"The Endowment Fund for Children's Health helps to improve the general level of education among doctors in the field of caring for mothers and their children. This fund has allowed us to introduce new diagnostic and therapeutic methods for treating pregnant women, fetuses and critically ill newborns. With financial assistance from the Endowment Fund for Children's Health, our doctors are able to attend seminars and internships both at home and abroad. The quality of care indicators have improved significantly in recent years. The Endowment Fund is an indispensable and irreplaceable part of our health facility, which aims to provide professional care for mothers and their children to the maximum extent possible."
