30×30 Health Systems Initiative


The 30×30 Health Systems Initiative is a CCIH effort to strengthen 30 health systems in which faith-based health services operate, by 2030.

The foundation of 30×30 is the “health systems commitment” in which members, affiliates and other organizations commit to work in one or more health systems to improve such things as leadership, finance, workforce, supply chain, health information and services.

First Set of Commitments Released

CCIH released the first round of commitments in April 2020. CCIH will harness lessons and foster learning among organizations that made commitments and promote what will be called the “ABCs of health system strengthening.”

See the 30×30 Commitments document

Watch the webinar held April 23, 2020 featuring three faith-based organizations that made commitments to strengthen health systems through a variety of innovations. Sharing their organizations commitments were Josh Guenther, Uganda Country Director, LifeNet International; Perry Jansen, Vice President, African Mission Healthcare; and Nancy TenBroek, Senior Program Consultant, World Renew.

Goals of 30×30 Health Systems Initiative:

  • Increase global attention to the work of FB health services.
  • Work alongside FB health services to increase funding and improve policies.
  • Gather evidence of stronger health systems for FBOs.

If your organization was not part of the first round of commitments, you can submit your commitment for the next round. Here’s what you need to know to make your commitment:

What is a Commitment?

A commitment is a public statement to work together to strengthen a health system in which FBOs operate. Please include what your organization plans to do to strengthen the health system(s), including which of the following components will be affected and how: services, workforce, financing, supply chain, data, leadership/governance.  Emphasize how this commitment will affect two or more organizations and how it will lead to better access, utilization and/or quality of services.

CCIH will open the process to submit commitments for the second set of commitments in October 2020.

Benefits of making a Commitment

  • Raise visibility for your work with decision makers.
  • Help CCIH advocate for your work.
  • Help others know what you are trying to do so they can help.
  • Help CCIH analyze gaps in resources and services.

Who can make a Commitment?

Any organization, whether it is a CCIH member or not, can make a commitment in the 30×30 Health Systems Initiative.

Here is a document listing the questions you will need to answer in the commitment form.
