Health workers and citizens in low-income countries do not have access to relevant, reliable healthcare knowledge that is vital to reduce child mortality and morbidity.
Child Healthcare Information for All (CHIFA), which launched in November, seeks to bridge this gap and addresses the information and learning needs of those responsible for the care of children in developing countries, including mothers, fathers and family caregivers as well as health workers.
CHIFA is a global campaign, professional network and discussion forum which links academic centres with grassroots health workers. Its remit includes children’s rights to health and healthcare, and the social determinants of health.
CHIFA is free and open to anyone with an interest in child health. Join here: www.chifa.org
CHIFA members get to:
- Join a community of more than 3300 members from 140 countries dedicated to meeting the information and learning needs of healthcare providers
- Find out about funding and training opportunities, websites, new publications
- Raise awareness about their work
- Share their experience and learn from others
CHIFA is administered by the Global Healthcare Information Network, the International Child Health Group of the Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health, and the International Society for Social Pediatrics and Child Health
