Children's Medical Foundation
The mission of the Children's Medical Foundation (CMF) is to develop and implement sustainable solutions in health care for children in Asia, and in particular for children in underprivileged situations.
Through the establishment of collaborative partnerships and institutional linkages, CMF provides resources towards capacity building initiatives, bringing accessible healthcare to rural communities and strengthening community health and primary care in Asia.
CMF's current programmatic focus is on improving the healthcare available to newborn babies in China where the rate of death of infants in rural areas is amongst the highest in Asia and where we have established strong historical institutional relationships. Our programs are centered around capacity building through training, collaborative program development and improving infrastructure; leveraging partnerships and networks with our healthcare partners at the local and national level; and providing emergency funding for families who cannot afford life-saving treatment for their babies. Monitoring and evaluation are key elements of our program design, and accountability and transparency in our use of donor funds.
