A group of leaders in business, technology, entertainment and philanthropy working hand-in-hand with the nation's leading pediatricians and child health experts to support our mission for children.

Why Invest in Children?

Children represent the heart of a community and their health and well-being are the keystones to a brighter, more vibrant future. We understand this deeply at the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP), which is why we’ve launched the Partnership for Healthy Children.

The Partnership is a call to invest in the future of our nation’s youth by focusing on their healthy physical, mental and emotional development.

Partnership members, leaders in business, philanthropy, entertainment, and technology, work hand-in-hand with the nation’s pediatricians and child health experts to advise on the critical philanthropic programs of the American Academy of Pediatrics.  

Become a Champion of Children

The Partnership for Healthy Children is at a pivotal launch phase as the 67,000 AAP members seek partners with knowledge and experience outside of pediatrics. This is an invitation from our nation’s pediatricians to join us to make a better future for children. Your charitable investment, unique perspective, and expertise in your field are invaluable. Joining the Partnership now could significantly shape its direction and success.

Together, we can advance the cause of optimal health and well-being, ensuring that our children and teens—future leaders, thinkers, and innovators get the best start in life.
