EACH, the European Association for Children in Hospital, is an international umbrella organisation open to European non-governmental, non-profit national associations involved in the welfare of children in hospital and other healthcare services .

All the member associations promote the implementation of the EACH Charter. In the EACH Charter the standards are set for the quality of care and the rights of sick children and their families.

The articles in the Charter apply to all sick children, regardless of their age, illness, disability as well as their religion and their social or cultural background.

The activities of the member organisations of EACH are adapted to the needs of each particular country.
