Christian Aid Health strategy 2017-20

A strategy for Christian Aid's health work globally

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.

Community health in a global context

In 2016, Christian Aid commissioned a research report entitled ‘Putting Christian Aid’s approach to Community Health Integration into a Global Context’. The research was funded by the PPA and sought to reflect on Christian Aid’s approach to health integration and compare that to global health policy and priorities. 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

Tackling violence, building peace: global strategy 2016

Violence and conflict affects almost one fifth of the world’s population or 1.5 billion people. The daily fear, uncertainty and suffering borne by people living through violent conflicts in countries such as Syria, Iraq and South Sudan is immeasurable and unimaginable. The war in Syria, has contributed to the highest number of displaced people since World War II; nearly five million having fled its bombs and bullets. Meanwhile, the catastrophe continues for people trapped in besieged villages across Syria and Iraq. Other countries like Colombia are striving to end protracted conflicts and push peace over the line. Today, one in every 122 people is now a refugee, internally displaced or seeking asylum, and the cost of world military spending is said to be nearly 250 times more than is spent on peace building. Christian Aid has adopted ‘Tackling Violence, Building Peace,’ as a strategic priority to address these critical trends and because we know that human development cannot be achieved without tackling violence. Seventy years after Christian Aid’s establishment, the root causes and levels of violence in poor communities where we work persists, often at higher levels and irrespective of whether those communities are ‘at war’ or not. Most of the world’s poorest people live outside of any form of protection and remain vulnerable to war and conflict, violent criminal organisations, gender-based violence, police abuse, forced labour and violent theft of land and other assets on a daily basis. People who do not have a safe place to call home, reliable access to food and an income because of violence, cannot plan for the future. Communities living through daily violence cannot thrive. And children who are forced to leave school because of violence are denied a chance at their hopes and dreams. Women and girls are also increasingly subject to physical and sexual violence, a harrowing result of gender inequality. Conflict is complex and even when peace comes, it does not always signal an end to violence. It can mark a shift from militarised conflict to widespread social conflict. For example, in Central America more people die violently today due to crime than during the civil wars of Guatemala, El Salvador and Nicaragua combined. Our new strategy underpins our commitment to tackle violence and to promote just and lasting peace and security where we work. The strategy is deeply informed by our work in countries across the globe and reflects the aspirations and vision of our local partners. Peace is both an end in itself and a prerequisite for development. ‘Tackling Violence, Building Peace’ is our pledge to work tirelessly and collectively towards a safer future that secures justice and human rights for all.
