Christians and Immunization Print
Reports of religious objections to vaccinations can paint a picture that faith communities are opposed to immunization. In this new video produced by CCIH, Dr. Richard Lane of Liberty University examines this trend of religious objections and misperceptions and discusses how faith communities are helping protect the lives of children with vaccines.

Reports from the FBO Ebola Response Print
Faith-based organizations have been on the front lines responding to the Ebola outbreak from its early days, providing care to patients, working to prevent the spread of the virus and partnering with churches to educate pastors and communities about the disease and dispel myths. CCIH is working to help faith-based organizations share information, challenges and requests for help in the Ebola response, including establishing an Ebola section under Resources on the CCIH website and an Ebola listserv.

Reflections on Two Decades with CCIH
by Ray Martin, CCIH Executive Director Emeritus
I would never have dreamed in 1994 when I accepted Frank Baer's invitation to go to a CCIH conference that I would eventually serve on the CCIH Board for 18 years, the last 14 as Executive Director. Encountering this fledgling community of Christian global health professionals was a life-changing experience for me.
But as Greek philosopher Heraclitus said around 500 BC, "The only thing that is constant is change.” I am now stepping down, figuring that in my mid-70s it is time for others to take on the leadership of CCIH. I do plan to remain active with CCIH, however, but in a different and less intense role, working with my interim successor Garrett Grigsby, the CCIH staff and board, and all of you as members in our shared mission of "promoting global health and wholeness from a Christian perspective."

CBCHS Fights Cervical Cancer with Vaccine Print
Christian Organization Protects Girls from Cervical Cancer in Cameroon
In response to the high rate of cervical cancer in Cameroon, the Cameroon Baptist Health Convention Services (CBCHS) Women’s Health Program (WHP) embarked on a program in 2010 to protect girls from developing the disease by vaccinating them against the Human Papilloma Virus (HPV) that causes cervical cancer. CBCHS has been providing care and preventive health services in Cameroon for more than 60 years, operating six hospitals and more than 75 health units in the African nation.
Many Cameroonians have had a family member, friend or colleague who has died of cervical cancer. The CBCHS promoted the HPV vaccine as the best way to prevent such sad cases in the future. Cervical cancer is the second most common cancer in women worldwide, with 500,000 new cases and more than 250,000 deaths reported each year. It is the leading cause of cancer deaths in women in developing nations. Africa has been especially hard hit by this cancer, as women there generally have limited access to screening and early treatment common in developed nations.
