ECA are partnering with the Caribbean and African Health Network (CAHN) to participate in a two-year funded health programme that aims to improve black health and challenge health inequalities.
The Caribbean and African Targeted Health Improvement Programme (CATHIP) is a national programme which will run from February 2022 to December 2023. There are five partners across the country in, Birmingham, Leeds, London North (Enfield), London South (Croydon) and Sheffield. The programme will include weekly health hour sessions addressing health issues that are relevant to the black community, led by doctors, professors and other medical experts, the information will also be shared using radio stations, social media and Newsletters.
The Caribbean and African Health Network (CAHN) is a Black-led organisation set up to reduce health inequalities in the Caribbean & African community in Greater Manchester and beyond. CAHN seek to address the wider social determinants that reduce health inequalities and works with the Black community, and cross-sector organisations in a collaborative way to build community resilience and improve understanding of the Black community. CAHN’s vision is to eradicate health inequalities within a generation for Caribbean & African people. Our mission is to lead strategic engagements aimed at influencing policy and practice in a way that ensures racial justice is embedded in decision-making matrices of service providers, commissioners and health services reform.
ECA believes the programme will meet the communities needs and to this end welcome any suggestions regarding the health topics that you would like to see addressed.
