Advancing global health from a Christian perspective

When it was first formed in 1987, Christian Connections for International Health (CCIH) had a unique goal: that of advancing global health from a Christian perspective. Soon enough, their members realized that maternal and child health is closely dependent on women having access to family planning services and supplies.

CCIH is now a global network of over 200 organizations. Each year they bring together Christian healthcare providers from all over the world to their annual meeting where they share best practices and establish new connections. Family planning is one of their main priorities, as they understand the need for such services and the profound impact they have on the health of women and their children.

We work with our diverse membership to help promote family planning in a manner that is respectful of varying perspectives and that resonates with communities that may be concerned about family planning or not understand the need for such services.
