Reaching the Unreached with Health Services & Information 
Dear CSI Friends, Partners, and Donors:

We welcome you to 2017 and hope you had a restful holiday season with loved ones. CSI kicked off 2017 with a message amplifying the need to humanize health and increase grassroots level integration of basic health services and information. If you did not get an opportunity to read it, click here

In the months to come, our team is prepared to collaborate, adjust and explore various opportunities to maximize impact of effective low-cost low-tech interventions in line with CSI's vision and top five priorities. While it may be too soon to predict the precise direction and impact of the new U.S. Administration's policies on global health programs specifically reproductive, maternal, newborn, child and adolescent health in developing countries, CSI will remain an active and vocal global health advocate alongside partners. 

Our sleeves are rolled up and we're already driving positive change -- CSI Teams with local and international partners are preparing for community based activities to provide free cervical cancer screening and education in Wakiso, Uganda and accelerate opportunities for girls to #BeBoldForChange in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania. #CSI2017.

CSI Uganda will return to Kajjansi Health Center III off Entebbe Road for the second free cervical cancer and community outreach event.

The all-day event includes free cervical cancer screening, treatment, referral, health education, information and more. #CSIUganda

CSI Tanzania with in-country partners will join forces and resources to celebrate women and amplify the call to action for accelerated gender parity and increase awareness for adolescent/youth girls in Tanzania to have access to quality education and opportunities. Stay tuned. #BeBoldForChange #CSITanzania

Access to quality health care is a basic and universal human right; it is the duty of those who have it to extend it to those that don't have it. ~ Mpanda & Suedi, April 2013.
