We work with communities to improve their Health, sanitation, hygiene and environment, unleashing their creative potential for sustainable solutions.
CBPHi is a non profit making organisation, working with Local Authorities to promote sustainable health and environment and management in the communities, through creating space for communities to unleash their creative potential
CBPHi was founded in 2014 generating from a research findings carried out on the in Kiboga District by a Master of Public Health Student “ Factors Affecting Mothers’ Utilization of Early Infant Diagnosis of HIV in Kiboga District Health Facilities”. According to the research findings, the community factors play a substantive role in affecting the response to health and other services. Once the community regards the services as essential, a positive response will be given and once the services are regarded as non essential, a negative or dormant response will be given.
- To build the capacity of community to understand and address issues amenable to prevention, including but not limited to activities which links them to more effectively with health and human service professionals, local resource institutions, community agencies and local government.
- To facilitate the development of public health interventions and policies through research, surveillance, education and integrated action plans that grow from lessons learnt at community level
