About Us


Improving child and maternal healthcare worldwide.

Mission Statement

CAI works to alleviate the suffering of mothers and children in countries where there is extreme poverty, armed conflict or other disaster. With the help of local professionals we deliver hands on maternal and child friendly healthcare, specifically in hospitals but also integrating closely with primary healthcare. We provide training in emergency care for medical and nursing staff using the educational materials we develop. Through advocacy we promote the best interests of children and their mothers.
