Christian Aid management response – health integration research

The health integration research positioned Christian Aid’s health work well within the global health policy arena and comparatively against other INGOs. It highlighted a number of strengths and areas of expertise of our work. It detailed recommendations for us to leverage upon these strengths to access funding and gain more recognition for our work globally. The research provided definitions of the different types of integration into which our health work fits, namely integrated within wider development strategies, integration at various levels within a health system (from national to community) and health issue level, i.e. disease integration. This is useful in helping CA to understand the multiple ways in which our programmes are integrated and to utilise this to build our work further. This paper features recommendations from research.

The research provides recommendations for Christian Aid to continue to strengthen our integrated health programmes. This is a summary of the report, which contains the key strategic and programmatic recommendations.Understanding integration and the changing context of health
