Journey to a more healthy, inclusive, just and peaceful world

Family health and well-being

Our Focus Areas

Family health and well-being

Faith to Action Network members invest in family health and well-being, enabling human beings to develop and enjoy full and fulfilling lives.


As communities of faith, we are called upon to attend to the “total person,” that is, address the person holistically. Our different religious traditions address the physical, social, emotional, intellectual, occupational, political, security, economic, and environmental dimensions of wellness. Consequently, issues relating to family health and well-being are integral to our identity as communities of faith.


We are acutely aware of the numerous challenges that women, adolescents and young people and children face in our communities. In particular, we are struck by the limited access to information and services, the high incidences of teenage pregnancy, gender-based violence, HIV infections, and limited nutrition options that destroy or derail people’s lives.


Our faiths encourage all people, including adolescents and youth, to acquire life-giving knowledge. Accessing age-appropriate, accurate and up-to-date information about how our bodies function, promoting healthy sexuality and preventing violence enables individuals to contribute constructively towards their communities and flourishing societies. We encourage our members to seek knowledge and services so that, alongside the teaching of our faiths, they can make informed choices.


Join us in advancing family health and well-being; women’s rights and gender justice; and peaceful, just and inclusive communities.
