CCIH 2017 Conference Dates Announced Print
 
The CCIH 2017 Conference will be held July 13-15 at Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, Md. Our theme is Strengthening Global Health: Faith at the Center, a concept closely linked to our Core Focus area of Integrating Faith and Health. We will explore how our Christian faith guides our work, and address such questions as:
 
  • What is our role as Christians in ensuring all people have access to community-based care and preventive services, especially marginalized communities?
  • What programs have we launched that protect and empower women and children and strengthen families?
  • How do we sustain and strengthen evidence-based and people-centered health systems.to ensure high-quality care for all?
 
Share your ideas and your work with other Christians working in global health and submit an abstract for a conference session. Sponsoring the conference is a great way to connect with Christian organizations working in global health. Learn about Sponsorship opportunities

Board Approves New Strategic Plan Print
The CCIH Board of Directors approved the final version of the 2016-2021 Strategic Plan on September 12, 2016. We thank all the CCIH members who contributed to the development of the plan by participating in the member interest survey and especially to those who submitted comments on the draft plan. The four major Focus Areas outlined in the plan are a direct result of your input gathered in the survey we conducted in October 2015 to identify where members would like CCIH to focus time and resources. 
 
The draft Strategic Plan was introduced at the CCIH Annual Conference Business Meeting on June 18, 2016. The structure, new identity statements, and four focus areas of the Strategic Plan were endorsed by the membership with some suggested edits. A Strategic Planning Subcommittee revised the plan based on those suggestions and further edits submitted via email.
 
The Strategic Plan includes an Annual Operating Plan outlining near-term goals and projects for the upcoming years. The four Focus Areas outlined in the Strategic Plan are:
 
  • Integration of Faith and Health
  • Health Systems Strengthening
  • Community-based Prevention and Care
  • Maternal and Child Health 
 
Working Groups
 
CCIH is organizing four working groups that correlate with the four Focus Areas. If you would like to participate on a working group, please contact Kathy Erb at kathy.erb [at] ccih.org. Thank you for your involvement in guiding the future of CCIH!

Kenyan Priest on Family Planning Print
Hear Father John Waihiga of the Orthodox Church Kimende in Kiambu County, Kenya share his views on how the Bible supports healthy timing and spacing of pregnancy through the use of family planning for healthier mothers, children, congregations and entire communities. Father John explores scripture, such as 1 Timothy 5:8 and Genesis 1:28, to explain how Christians are following God's call to be responsible parents and stewards of creation by planning their families.

Rising Tide of NCDs Print
2016 Christian IH Champion Speaks Out in US News on Increasing NCDs
 
In this piece in U.S. News & World Report, Dr. Samuel Mwenda, General Secretary of the Christian Health Association of Kenya makes the case for turning our attention to Kenya's rising tide of chronic diseases such as diabetes, cancer and heart disease while keeping the country's focus on HIV/AIDS.
 
Kenya is an AIDS success story and is one of countries showing the most remarkable progress in reducing new HIV infections, but increasing life expectancies and poor health habits such as more fast food and more sedentary lifestyles have resulted in a growing trend of non-communicable diseases.
 
Dr. Mwenda became the third recipient of the CCIH Christian International Health Champion Award at the 2016 CCIH Annual Conference in June.
