2019 CCIH Conference

October 23, 2018

by Kathy Erb

Abstract Submission Process Is Open

The CCIH 2019 Conference will be held June 6-8 at Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, Maryland. Our theme is Called to Care: A Strong Community for Lasting Health. At our core, faith communities are called to care for themselves and those in need. Paul’s letter to the Philippians reminds us in verses 3-4 to “do nothing from selfish ambition or conceit, but in humility count others more significant than yourselves. Let each of you look not only to his own interests, but also to the interests of others.” This missive is even more important in the complex world of today.

The conference will explore questions such as:

  • How do we build capacity of local caring communities and organizations?
  • How can faith-based organizations incorporate human-centered design? (Program design that considers the human perspective in all steps of development and problem solving.)
  • Are faith-based programs themselves resilient and innovative?
  • Are we working with other faith-based organizations, churches, government agencies, NGOs, and others to ensure our communities are self-sufficient?
  • How are faith-based organizations integrating faith and work in the field?

And much more. Learn more about opportunities to reach Christians working in global health by becoming a conference sponsor.
