CBE will have a booth at the 31st annual Christian Connections for International Health (CCIH) conference. The theme of the conference is Strengthening Global Health: Faith at the Center. In the midst of every global health crisis, we are called to minister to those around us. This conference will explore how our Christian faith guides our work, and address such questions as:
- What is our role as Christians in ensuring all people have access to community-based care and preventive services, especially marginalized communities?
- What programs have we launched that protect and empower women and children and strengthen families?
- How do we sustain and strengthen evidence-based and people-centered health systems?
CBE partner and consultant, Emma Smith Cain, will be speaking at this event! Emma used CBE resources in her work for Samaritan’s Purse, fighting gender-based violence in Congo and South Sudan, working with community churches and leaders. Her talk is entitled “A Lasting Change: Addressing Gender-Based Violence through Church-Based Intervention and Protection Committees.”
