CFHI is a non-profit, 501(c)3 organization that specializes in Global Health Education. CFHI’s approach is unique: we offer individual trainees and university partners opportunities to learn about global health while embedded in existing health systems and social services sectors alongside local community members and leaders. We place our participants in appropriately scoped and supervised health settings and within sustainable Fair-Trade partnerships. We prioritize helping participants learn about context and the determinants of health so as to impart a broad-based understanding of the interplays between disease processes, social circumstances, poverty, resiliency, geopolitical realities, historical contexts, culture, and the complexities of health and wellness. CFHI utilizes an asset-based engagement model in which local communities own the educational narrative as they work to achieve health equity and social justice. CFHI’s expertise is in preserving the authenticity of the community’s expertise and presenting ‘real-life’ global health, while nesting programs in gold-standard educational pedagogies and ethical/safety standards, always in line with local laws and universal guidelines.
CFHI is an NGO in Special Consultative Status with the ECOSOC of the United Nations. Join us and “Let the World Change You.”
