Canadian Physicians for Aid and Relief


Building stronger health systems in Sub-Saharan Africa:
Canadian Medical Foundation and Canadian Physicians for Aid and Relief

The Canadian Medical Foundation (CMF) is partnering with Canadian Physicians for Aid and Relief (CPAR) to improve health systems capacity and address the determinants of health.

For over 30 years, CPAR has made a commitment to long-term change in rural East Africa. CPAR employs a community-centered development approach, working in partnership with African community members to develop initiatives that best address their needs, where they live. We work to improve the quality of their lives, and that of future generations.

CPAR works in partnership with health professionals, vulnerable communities and governments to build health systems capacity in Sub-Saharan Africa.

The CMF actively supports the philanthropic priorities of Canadian physicians and recognizes that medical outreach is consistently a top priority. As part of our medical outreach program, CMF is raising funds to support CPAR’s programs in Africa.

Donations to support this program can be made here. Please note in the comments section of the donation form that your donation is for the CPAR Fund.
