Community Health Projects
CFHI Community Health Projects build and reinforce the importance of passion within resource-restricted communities. They use an asset-based community engagement approach that focuses on strengths rather than needs and weaknesses. These projects help to bring solidarity, financial support, material support, and exposure to innovative ideas that are led by local health care workers, community leaders, and other native change agents. Thus focusing on building local, sustainable capacity, skills, and fueling local passion to create a better tomorrow.
CFHI supports these projects as a means of community empowerment, as well as a mechanism to counter the push factors that contribute to the loss of talent and leaders from low and middle income countries to high income settings. The projects contribute to the retention of health care workers by investing in their passion and projects, as well as a means of reinvesting in our partner communities that host participants in CFHI Global Health Education Programs. This belief in empowering local communities to realize their own strength-based agenda is a hallmark of our approach to development.
