About us

Community Partners International (CPI) is a US non-profit organization dedicated to serving vulnerable populations, with a particular focus  on  women  and  children,  in  remote,  under-served  and  conflict-affected  regions  of  Myanmar (Burma) where there is little or no access to health care or public health education. We work with 26 local partner organizations to improve health and education, led by and for local people in a country where one in three children are malnourished and one in five dies before their fifth birthday.

Through our field offices in Myanmar and on the Thailand-Myanmar border, we provide training, technical support and resources to help our partners implement a broad array of initiatives, including clean births and emergency obstetric care; malaria screening, treatment  and  prevention;  community first  aid  and  emergency surgical care; Vitamin A distribution to prevent blindness and help children survive and thrive;  and overall health systems  strengthening  to  improve  community-based infrastructure and assessment of health needs and services.

In  cooperation  with  our  local  partners,  we  support  networks  of  hundreds  of  community  clinics,  and thousands  of  medics,  health  workers  and  midwives  providing  these  essential,  lifesaving  health  care services  to  820,000  people  throughout  Myanmar.  Through regular research carried out with our partners, we ensure that our initiatives are evidence-based and designed to respond to the most urgent health needs of populations with optimal impacts within the environmental and resource constraints.

CPI was founded in 1997, is headquartered in Berkeley, California, and operates five field offices. The organization employs approximately 45 members of staff, 41 of whom are based in the field. Please visit our website at www.cpintl.org for more information.
