CHIFA (child health and rights)

CHIFA (Child Healthcare Information For All) addresses the information and learning needs of those responsible for the care of children in developing countries, including mothers, fathers and family caregivers as well as health workers, researchers and policymakers. Its remit includes children’s rights to health and healthcare, and the social determinants of health. The vision of CHIFA is: A world where every child, every parent and every health worker has access to the health information they need to protect their own health and the health of children for whom they are responsible.

"Enter into the discussion of important child health issues. Your journey of discovery is about to begin." Prof Duke Duncan, American Academy of Pediatrics
