Welcome to CAI
(Childhealth Advocacy International)

CAI (Childhealth Advocacy International) is an international maternal and child healthcare charity dedicated to saving the lives of pregnant women, children and babies in countries where there is poor healthcare. Our volunteer senior doctors, midwives and nurses work with, support and train local health workers. We work in and advocate for hospitals and the community, integrating their work to improve and achieve sustainable healthcare.

Each year 4 million babies die worldwide within their first month of life and 1 in 26 women die during childbirth in Africa. With improved training, care, equipment and advocacy many deaths will be prevented.

CAI helps health services in disadvantaged countries to improve the treatment they can offer to children and pregnant mothers:

  • CAI designs and delivers training in emergency treatment of children and mothers, appropriate for hospitals and clinics with modest resources.

  • CAI runs outreach services which take hospital clinics out into the community where families can reach them.

  • CAI re-equips paediatric wards

  • CAI projects treat a variety of life-threatening health problems
