UK Aid Match

UK Aid Match is a UK aid-funded programme that doubles all donations received during a defined appeal period. Previous Christian Aid UK Aid Match programmes include Kenya, Malawi and Nigeria. We are currently managing a programme in South Sudan.

UK Aid Match 2: maternal health in Kenya and Malawi

Our joint maternal health programmes in Isiolo County, Kenya, and Karonga District, Malawi focused on saving lives in childbirth by strengthening demand for and access to health services. Programme activities included the funding of maternity wings in district hospitals, rural transport to bring pregnant women to local health facilities and awareness raising in remote rural communities.

UK Aid Match 4: health - integrated community case management (ICCM) in Nigeria

UK Aid Match 4 focused on Integrated Community Case Management (ICCM) of childhood illnesses - malaria, pneumonia and diarrhoea - in four Local Government Areas in Benue State, Nigeria. Taking an ICCM approach tested the feasibility of removing simple diagnosis and treatment from the health centre setting, to the community setting. This aimed to provide faster treatment for simple issues, creating faster referral and more capacity at the health centre to deal with complicated issues.

The project aimed to increase knowledge of, access to, and uptake of quality services and interventions to reduce child mortality and morbidity rates. The project is named the Partnership for Improved Child Health (PICH).

UK Aid Match 7 adopts an inclusive and integrated nutrition sensitive approach to enhance nutritional outcomes for 28,174 women and girls of child bearing age and 24,733 children under-five in Aweil North and Jur River Nyal counties. The project will enhance household nutrition and care practices, access to diverse nutritious food, safe water and better services, by addressing root causes of under nutrition, including harmful social norms and strengthening capacity of two county nutrition departments.
